Labour's Review - Terms of Reference Agreed

Labour's Review - Terms of Reference Agreed

Following a meeting of its ruling New Zealand Council yesterday, Labour has released the terms of reference for the comprehensive review initiated following its 2014 election result. The review will comprise three elements

- a review of Labour's 2014 General Election campaign;

- a review of Labour's political positioning going forward, with reference to the past three General Election results; and

- recommendations for rebuilding and modernising Labour.

Moira Coatsworth, Labour President, said today:

"Learning the lessons of this campaign and of the last few years is crucial if we're to quickly get back to representing the hopes of New Zealanders for the future. Labour will listen carefully and apply the lessons thoroughly. The review will be robust and will provide clear recommendations for the way we rebuild and reconnect. After listening carefully Labour will make the changes necessary toward victory in 2017”.

The review process will include engagement with a wide range of people including Party members. The names of the reviewers will be announced within the next week. Most of the work will be completed by December.

The spending lavished on Defence projects to meet the risks that could maybe, possibly, theoretically face New Zealand in future is breath-taking, given how successive governments have been reluctant to spend even a fraction of those amounts on the nation’s actual social needs. More>>
