News release from NZ Labour Party
The National Party’s deal with Peter Dunne is a rort and shows the people of Ōhāriu are being taken for granted, says Labour candidate Virginia Andersen.
“Peter Dunne has been placed on political life support by the National Party. His political blunders have seen him lose his party and his Ministerial portfolios. The National Party is the only thing keeping him alive.
“While he’s been busy stitching up deals with National, I’ve been out on the doorsteps talking to voters about what matters to them – and like me, they care about power prices, grocery bills and making sure their kids get the best start in life.
“Voters have a choice – they can vote for more of the same or they can vote for fresh energy and an MP and a party that puts them and their families first.
“Ōhāriu needs fresh energy and its voters deserve to be represented by an MP, not a National mouthpiece.”
