Destiny NZ Unveils Political Policies In Nelson
Destiny NZ Unveils Political Policies In Nelson:
Education, Civil Union Bill and Economics.
Political party Destiny New Zealand presented its key policies in Nelson on the weekend and congratulated many parents attending for a recent report which rated Nelson school children as being among the best behaved in the country.
Talking to an audience of nearly 100 locals, Destiny New Zealand Education spokesperson, Anne Williamson, said the Destiny NZ education policy combined the virtues of academic, vocational skills and character excellence.
"It is essential that academic achievement is underpinned by healthy character. Identity and destiny, attitudinal development, health, economics, leadership and vision should be included in primary school curriculums", said Williamson.
Party leader, Richard Lewis, outlined their dedicated 'family' policy, which aims to restore a marriage culture.
"Many people are not aware that accompanying the pending Civil Union Bill, which effectively legalises 'same sex marriage', is a second Bill tagged the 'Omnibus Bill'," said Lewis. "This Bill rewrites some 160 pieces of legislation eliminating the words 'husband', 'wife' and 'marriage' primarily to accommodate same-sex unions. This development blatantly undermines everything that our nation has traditionally stood for in terms of family life and family values."
"This sort of legislation attacks the very foundations and building blocks of our society. Destiny New Zealand's vision for families boldly and unashamedly restores and upholds the marriage benchmark for New Zealand families, and that being a marriage between a 'man' and a 'woman'," he said.
Finance spokesperson David Jesze also presented policy pointers on economics and small business. He said Destiny New Zealand was a business friendly party that supports wealth creation and provide incentives to do well instead of punishing success.
"Key pillars are the financial empowerment of our families, the lowering of corporate and personal tax rates, a dedicated Exporters Support Policy and a formalized cohesion between business and education sectors", he added.

throughout the country at the next election. The party has
