On The Nation this weekend… 26th-27th April 2014

On The Nation this weekend… we’ll examine the fallout from the departure of Shane Jones, and take a look at the priorities of the man who will replace him in Parliament, Kelvin Davis.

Then Lisa Owen will gauge reaction from Labour’s deputy leader David Parker and find out how he wants to change the Reserve Bank – and the effect that would have on the high New Zealand dollar, house prices and interest rates.

And with the growing public backlash against the Psychoactive Substances Act, associate Health Minister Peter Dunne and Local Government New Zealand president Lawrence Yule go head to head. They’ll debate whether the law is working, and if synthetic drugs should be banned outright.

We’ll examine all this and more with our panel Carterton mayor Ron Mark, former Labour Party candidate Josie Pagani, and Metro magazine editor Simon Wilson.


The Nation on TV3, 9.30am Saturdays and 10am Sundays.

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>>
