Rock The Vote NZ Announce Their Candidate For Maungakiekie, Eric Chuah

Rock The Vote NZ are pleased to announce our candidate for the Maungakiekie electorate in the 2023 NZ General Election: Eric Chuah.

Eric Chuah was a former lecturer in psychology at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia (2012-2014) and also worked in the Monash University Global Terrorism Research Centre at the Caulfield Campus, Melbourne. Later he was appointed as researcher for the EU Report On Hate Crime (2018-2020).

Eric Chuah holds a BA (Legal Studies/Sociology), MA (Sociology), BA (Honors-1st Class in Strategic Studies), a Postgraduate Diploma Eqv. in Law, and an Honorary Doctorate at Stamford College (conferred 1991).

Eric Chuah was a candidate and Deputy Leader for the Advance New Zealand Party in the 1996 NZ General Election, standing in the Owairaka electorate. In the 1999 NZ General Election, Eric was the Party Strategist and Immigration Spokesperson for the United Future Party, and greatly contributed to Peter Dunne winning the Ohariu-Belmont electorate seat.

Eric Chuah sees the need to strengthen our NZ Defence Force in the light of CCP enlargement and projection of power in the Asia Pacific. He also believes in the enshrinement of the NZ Bill of Rights Act 1990 in legislation, as well as introducing legislation to ensure that only NZ citizens can vote in NZ general elections.

Eric says “nowhere in the OECD and Asia Pacific/Western democracies are non-citizens allowed to vote. This undermines our nation’s security, territorial integrity and safety, as Permanent Residents do not swear allegiance to our NZ flag and King, Country and Commonwealth. Freedoms NZ and Rock The Vote NZ represent these values.”

Gordon Campbell: On The Government’s Smokefree Laws Debacle

The most charitable explanation for National’s behaviour over the smokefree legislation is that they have dutifully fulfilled the wishes of the Big Tobacco lobby and then cast around for excuses that might sell this health policy U-turn to the public. The less charitable view is that the government was being deliberately misleading. Are we to think Prime Minister Christopher Luxon is a fool or a liar? It seems rather early on in his term of office to be facing that unpleasant choice... More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
