Conservative Party to Get New Name


12 Dec 2017

Conservative Party to Get New Name.


Members of the Conservative Party of New Zealand voted to look at a name change at the party’s AGM held in Auckland in November.

Although all smaller parties had poor results this election, it was the belief of many members that a new name would encourage people to look at the positive, practical policies that the party presents.

Members are currently presenting their suggestions to the board, who hope to have the new name registered early next year.

“There is definitely a desire for a practical, solutions based party in Parliament, and we believe that we can represent that choice,” said Party Leader, Leighton Baker.

The current Conservative Party website will remain active until the new name and new website are released next year. www.conservativeparty.org.nz
