Internet Party launches candidate search for 2017 Party List
The Internet Party of New Zealand is calling for everyday Kiwis to nominate themselves for positions on its 2017 election campaign Party List.
The Internet Party's Facebook page has put a call-out to "people with guts and a social conscience... empathy, life experience and a love for the Internet" to apply now.
Internet Party Leader Suzie Dawson said "In the past, being a politician required a Politics major and years of grooming for the position. That resulted in an insulated political environment of narrow-mindedness, rife with corruption. In 2017, we deserve a modern government, capable of confronting all of the major issues that political elites love to sweep under the rug. To #UpdateNZ we need everyday people who know what is really going on, to step up and participate.Internet Party is about helping New Zealanders to create change and a big part of that is our commitment to taking Parliament out of the hands of political elites and giving that power back to our fellow citizens."
Campaign Team Co-ordinator Bill Urale said "Internet Party gives a damn. About our nation, about our community, about our people. Whatever the Internet Party does, you have a say. Even if you live around the world, you are still from the Land of the Long White Cloud, you are from the South Pacific. Join us."
Details on how to apply can be found on the Candidates page of the official Internet Party website.
