Tune in to tonight’s debate from 7pm

28 August, 2014

The countdown is on! You can watch the first leader’s debate for 2014 tonight, 7pm, on TV One.

John Key will be talking about National’s plan to keep building a stronger economy so we can provide more support for families and communities. But he’ll need your help to get the message out tonight.

Here’s what you can do:

• If you’re on Twitter, share your thoughts on the debate by using the hashtag#vote2014nz

Submit a debate question which could be drawn to ask John Key and David Cunliffe

Follow us on Facebook from 7.00pm and like or share our debate posts, and click on the below image to share it to your Facebook page before the debate

If you’re not on Facebook or Twitter, talk about the debate and our plan on talkback or when writing letters to the editor.

The choice this election is stark. National’s plan is working for New Zealand, while Labour and the Greens have already notched up a staggering $28 billion in spending promises.

Tonight #TeamKey needs your help to get the message out. Let’s keep the team that’s working.

Team Key
