Our NZ has a Constitution

Our New Zealand has a Constitution that makes all citizens equal before the law, protects their human rights and establishes Presidential governance says Kerry Bevin, leader of the Republic of New Zealand party.

Mr Bevin was announcing that the Republic of New Zealand Party and Our NZ have agreed to combine for the coming General Elections.

He said this agreement had emerged from meetings between himself and Our NZ leader Kelvyn Alps and members of both parties.

The revolutionary reforms we’ll propose will give Kiwis a way forward from stagnation, he said.

“We will advance the ideal of our country as a Republic with Our NZ. Kelvyn’s vision makes him a leader for the future,” Mr Bevin said.

Our New Zealand proposes a united New Zealand with a new written constitution.
Ownership of democracy and assets will be attained through Binding Referenda on important issues.

Economic stimulation with a fair and simple one per cent Transaction Tax and No Income Tax will bring much more money to government coffers.

This advances health, education, infrastructure, regional development, Treaty reconciliations and rebuilding Christchurch, Mr Bevin said

Green policy restricts pollution and promotes sustainability with alternative energy and greater research and development.

Defence enhancement will strengthen security and train youth to contribute as part of our society.

“Intelligent New Zealanders should take responsibility for the future of their families by taking a bold New Start with OURNZ Party,” he said.
