Democracy would be better served if as many voters as possible were represented in parliament. We will remove the party vote threshold so that every party with enough votes for a seat will be represented in parliament.

We will uphold the spirit of true democracy and ensure that free speech in New Zealand remains free. We will uphold people’s right to deliver, hear and engage in robust ideological debate, in order to make properly informed decisions.

Controls and restrictions on communication must be carefully considered. The role of government is not to dictate to individuals on what is subjectively viewed as acceptable or not.

We would make the Bill of Rights Act 1990 the Supreme Law to protect all our rights. This would prevent any government from overriding them and allow the Court to render any laws breaching our rights as invalid or void.
