“Many of us can see improvements that can be made, and we want to make sure that the policies of political parties meet our needs and therefore benefit the broader community. This is a great opportunity for members of all ethnic communities in Wellington to meet the candidates and seek answers to their questions”.

Federation members are tired of being used as political footballs each election. “We get kicked from party to party and it’s not good enough” says Mr Singh

“We are pretty tired of being used for others political gain, we want to engage in constructive discussion and debate on issues that are important to us. We hope this meeting will achieve this” he says
