New Zealand First party "making a big mistake" says ALCP

The New Zealand First party is making a big mistake by shutting down it's Social Media pages leading into an election year.

New Zealand First risk alienating the youth vote if they continue to censor its youth wing, ALCP leader Julian Crawford said.

Threatening to strip the membership of the party's youth leader Curwen Rolinson is not a good way to foster new talent in the party.

"Mr Rolinson is clearly the greatest hope for future leadership that New Zealand First has," Mr Crawford said.

"His public speaking abilities far outstripped other youth party leaders on Backbenches TV show and he showed he had what it takes to become a successful MP."

Mr Rolinson and any other young people looking for an alternative to New Zealand First were welcome to join the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party, Mr Crawford said.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
