New Political Party Offers Empowerment

New Political Party Offers Empowerment
June 23 2017 Kia Koe Party Press Release
Tags: Politics, voting and policies.

Newly launched political party Kia Koe offers empowerment through online submissions.

• Best possible parliamentary democracy
• Empowering people by inclusion in policy development
• Role of law and justice is constantly reconsidered and reapproved
• Question and re-approve the various roles of Government re services and expenditure.
• Limit the role of government to only those functions necessary

As a newly fledged political platform, Kia Koe makes itself available to everyone including minors over the age of 12 while those under 16 are limited in what they can vote for.
Nz.kiakoe.org provides a better approach for politics using four of six categories – Information (Facts), Financial Info, Environment, Education, Health and Spiritual.
Kia Koe is highly transparent, especially in all aspects of accounting. It has easy to use tools to enable the members in their choices.
Kia Koe’s concept originator Chris Kernot says when people sign up for Kia Koe (which means 'You choose.') they can comment using the four categories for a more rounded outcome.
“This way it enables an effective parallel thinking process that helps commenting and most importantly policy decision making and ranking be more productive, focused, and mindfully involved,” Kernot offers.
“Before you comment you must read all prior comments. I see that as essential in order to add a new view.” By reading, embracing, including and refining views, policies take shape in Kia Koe.
“By ranking how important a policy is to you, it rises in the list. Kia Koe members can then rate their personal reaction to the policy from ‘do not support’ to ‘strongly support.”
By including a view called The Other Side of the Coin, members can consider both negative and positive views producing more balanced options or scenarios.
“This is creating opportunities for policy development at grass roots level across all sectors of society. It ensures current generations are responsible for the ownership of their own political direction. We are setting up platforms for our future custodians, our children,” concludes Kernot.
