PRESS STATEMENT FOR RELEASE

Family Party announces new Party President

3 April 2008. The Family Party is pleased to announce the appointment of Elias Kanaris as its new Party President.

Mr Kanaris’ appointment is a strategic move to allow the former President, George Ngatai, to focus specifically on the Family Party campaign for Mangere and Manukau.

“We are tremendously excited to have Elias come on board in this fulltime capacity, which reflects the growth and progress of our organisation since our launch last year. It also enables us to take our campaign for Mangere and Manukau to the next level through George’s oversight, leadership and direction – reinforcing our position as the genuine contender against Labour for those seats,” says party leader Richard Lewis.

Mr Kanaris will give national oversight to the organisation and brings extensive experience in Senior General Management roles. He has a Master of Science in Medical Electronics (University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology, UK), a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (Kingston University, UK) and over 20 years experience predominantly in the Telecommunications and Financial Services sectors. Such roles have included being a Senior Consultant, the Product Development Manager at a leading global outsourcing provider and most recently as a Solution Architect for Vodafone New Zealand. He was also a key member of the internal team responsible for the development of a Call Centre strategy for Telecom New Zealand’s corporate market.

Werewolf: John Pilger, And Making War On China

In July, the New Zealand Defence Force is scheduled to join the latest round of Talisman Sabre, a huge training exercise that Australia carries out biennially in conjunction with all four arms of the US military.

Last time around in 2015, New Zealand contributed 650 personnel, 45 vehicles and two of our $NZ771 million dollar fleet of NH90 helicopters to this regional war game.

What’s weird is that Talisman Sabre is actually a rehearsal for an assault on China and its ability to defend itself. More>>
