“I’m delighted to be selected as National’s candidate for Takanini. This is an exciting new opportunity with a new electorate, and I will be working hard to ensure Takanini has strong National representation come September 19,” Ms Nakhle says.

“Takanini is a growing area with hard working families who are trying to get ahead. They, alongside the rest of New Zealand, are facing tough economic times, and they need a National Government to help guide them through these times.

“Only National has the team with the experience and know how to rebuild our economy and provide jobs for the people of Takanini.

“The current Government has talked a lot and promised even more, but there is a difference between delivering messages and being able to deliver what is promised in those messages. National can be counted on to deliver for our families.

“In the good times the Government has struggled to deliver on its promises, particularly around infrastructure. We are now facing a serious economic crisis, and Takanini needs to have confidence that its Government can meet the task.

“I’m looking forward to campaigning hard and earning Takanini’s trust to win support and join the National Party team. We can’t afford another Labour Government, certainly not in these times,” Ms Nakhle says.
