New Zealanders fed up with dirty politics

New Zealanders fed up with dirty politics

All over New Zealand, people are saying they are they are "fed up" with dirty politics. New Zealanders want better from politicians. They want clarity and accountability.

They want to know what their politicians can do for them. Currently parties dominate like corporate businesses and their MPs are accountable only to their party bosses.

NZ Independent Coalition challenges that tired party-serving structure offering positive change for the people of our country. We are about changing politics for the better.

“We are about making a difference. Our nation needs representatives who listen to locals in their electorate,” said Brendan Horan.

“Parties and their MPs have been utterly unaccountable for too long. That system is broken so let’s change it.

“With a vote for Brendan Horan in the Bay of Plenty electorate, and other NZ Independent Coalition electorate candidates and a party vote for NZ Independent Coalition in all electorates, voters will be assured of representatives who put the people of the electorate first.

“We offer open and transparent processes and plans, inviting all New Zealanders to participate so New Zealanders have a voice,” he said.

“Our core values include:
· A Fair Wage economy

· A Ministry of Job Creation and lower business taxes

· Health as a primary care service

· Boosting pensions for Seniors

· 0.1% Financial Transaction Tax on banks and forex traders
