The Nation 7/6/14: John Banks, Regions, Auckland Assets

This weekend on The Nation… the verdict is in and John Banks is guilty of filing a false electoral return. So what’s next for his party and electorate? We’ll talk to three contenders for the Epsom seat: ACT’s David Seymour, Labour’s Michael Wood and the Green Party’s Julie Anne Genter.

Then, are the regions in trouble? Or are they waiting to be unleashed? Lisa Owen will interview the Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce about which provinces are lagging behind and how we can spread the wealth and population beyond the big cities.

And Auckland Mayor Len Brown will talk about whether public space and car parks could be sold off to help fund his rail link – the top priority of his 30-year blueprint for the country’s largest city.

We’ll discuss all this and more with our panel: 3News political reporter Tova O’Brien, Generation Zero Auckland director Dr Sudhvir Singh, and journalist and former Act MP Deborah Coddington.
