ACT because NZ deserves better
Sunday 26th Sep 1999
Richard Prebble
Media Release -- Governance & Constitution
ACT will campaign that New Zealand deserves better, ACT Leader Richard Prebble said, responding to the Prime Minister's announcement of the election date.
"New Zealanders know that the country must do better if we are to have jobs and growth," Mr Prebble said.
"ACT has new ideas on how New Zealand can do better:
- in settling Treaty claims - fair full and final
- in restoring welfare as a safety net not a lifestyle option - a hand-up not a hand-out
- in better law and order - including truth in sentencing
- in helping small business create jobs, and in restoring rural profitability - by slashing red tape and bureaucracy
"New Zealanders know we must do better, but a violent U-turn to the left will be a change to the worse, with high taxes and the return of militant trade unions. No-one deserves three years of hard Labour/Alliance socialism.
"ACT will campaign on our record of being the voice of heartland New Zealand, bringing accountability and responsibility to Parliament.
"Only giving your party vote to ACT can bring positive change - because New Zealand does deserve better."
ENDS
