Taxpayer Union congratulations

The New Zealand Taxpayers' Union congratulates Prime Minister-elect Jacinda Ardern, and the Labour, New Zealand First and Green Parties on the formation of a new government.

“While we will need the formal coalition agreement and other information to see what the change will mean for New Zealand, the indications are that it will be major," says the Union's chairman John Bishop. 

"All three parties have big spending plans, which if aggregated together, would be damaging to the economy”.  

  “The Union will be working just as hard to hold to account those who spend our tax money, and fight for lower taxes, less waste and more transparency,” says John.
