PM Unfit for Office

The Republic of New Zealand Party

News Release

Monday 20 March 2006

P.M Unfit for Office

The Prime Minister is unfit for office according to Kerry Bevin, The Political Leader of the Republic of New Zealand Party (The Republicans).

“Her flagrant breach of the Electoral Act to the tune of $400,000 demonstrates a contempt for democracy unbecoming of a Prime Minister,” he said.

Mr Bevin said the decision by the Police not to prosecute, supported by the Electoral Commission is puzzling.

“Both organisations are reneging on their responsibility to protect the public interest. One wonders who is in who’s pocket,” he said.

“When you take into account Paintergate, the Police cavalcade charade, a Clayton’s cabinet, tennis ball discipline and electoral cheating, you have to seriously ask the question, is it already time for another election that would give people a say on the unethical government of Helen Clark?”

Mr Bevin said the Republicans say, “Yes, Helen must go.”
