We cannot have democracy unless our people are educated on all options that are available and the implications of those options. Currently almost all of election campaign funds are allocated to the two major parties. Other registered electoral parties get only a very tiny percentage of available funding. this is not sufficient to make their policies known to New Zealand voters. in addition the mainstream media tends to focus on the policies of the two main parties. In addition many political parties are funded by multinational and other corporations and by overseas persons who have vested interests in manipulating New Zealand policies for the own interests rather than for the good of New Zealanders.
Will you allow donations designed to buy influence?
The Outdoors Party will prohibit any electoral funding or donation by any person or entity that is not a registered voter on a New Zealand electoral roll. Any donation over $100 must be declared and must be made only by a person who is a registered member of that political party. This is to prevent individuals from effectively buying policies from multiple parties. This means that no funds can be contributed by any corporations, overseas persons or any other entity that is not a real person and registered to vote in New Zealand.
Will you change the way electoral funding is distributed?
There will be a review of the current mechanisms of allocating funding to ensure that they are much more fairly allocated between all registered political parties.
