DSC releases party list

21 October 2011

DSC releases party list

President David Wilson today released the Democrats for Social Credit's list of candidates for the 2011 Election.

"I'm proud to announce the DSC's list of candidates: our line-up features a dynamic combination of youth and experience. It reflects the indicative vote of our members and represents a strong, credible alternative for voters" said Mr Wilson.

"The list is weighted heavily in favour of southern candidates, reflecting the DSC's campaign focus for this election."

Mr. Wilson said that DSC candidates would work to promote the DSC's modern programme of new economics.

"New Zealand needs a 21st Century financial system. None of the parties in Parliament can deliver that: they don't even want to address the real cause of the global debt crisis.

"There has never been a better time for DSC candidates to promote our solutions on the hustings" concluded Mr Wilson.
