Statement from Woolworths Chairman Ralph Waters

Distributed on behalf of Woolworths Limited

19 February 2014

Statement from Chairman Ralph Waters

I completely reject Mr Jones' allegations and find his insinuations highly offensive.

My contribution to business in New Zealand speaks for itself.

For the last 13 years I have worked at a senior level with companies such as Fletcher Building, Fisher and Paykel Appliances, Fonterra and Westpac New Zealand.

I am extremely disappointed in Mr Jones' behaviour. Attacking an individual and business through the Parliament is no way for any politician to deal with an issue of concern or engage with the business sector.

ENDS

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>>
