Writ Day Ends Party Registration Activity

With today’s issuing of the writs for the general election the Electoral Commission has ceased all political party registration activity until after the election.

In order to be able to nominate a party list and contest the Party Vote side of the ballot paper parties have to be registered before Writ Day—October 27.

There are 29 parties eligible to contest the Party Vote though not all are expected to do so in their own right. Some registered parties will stand candidates under larger umbrella parties to which they are aligned and others may not nominate a party list at all as occurred in the 1996 election.

The 29 registered parties—in the order they were registered by the Commission—are:

The New Zealand National Party; New Zealand First Party; ACT New Zealand; New Zealand Labour Party; Christian Heritage Party: Graham Capill Party Leader; The Alliance; The Republican Party Incorporated; The McGillicuddy Serious Party; Te Tawharau; The New Zealand Democratic Party Incorporated; United New Zealand Party; The Greens, The Green Party of Aotearoa/New Zealand; Future New Zealand; Aotearoa/New Zealand Party; Natural Law Party; Green Society; Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party; Animals First; Mana Mäori Movement; Libertarianz; Asia Pacific United Party; The NZ South Island Party; Mana Wahine Te Ira Tangata; Mana Motuhake O Aotearoa; Freedom Movement; Mauri Pacific; The Peoples Choice Party; One New Zealand Party; and NMP.

There are a lot of good reasons to feel joyful about this outcome. It is what so many young voters – the best hope for the country’s future – wanted.

Far more important than the implications for the Economy Gods ( is the dollar up or down? ) last night’s outcome will also mean many, many vulnerable New Zealanders will have a better life over the next three years at least.

Yet the desire for change was in the majority, across the country..>>>More
