Published: Sun 17 Jun 2018 07:38 PM
At the party conference in Christchurch this weekend, delegates voted to reclaim the name under which the Party achieved 21 percent of the nation wide vote at its peak.
The conference voted overwhelmingly to campaign under the name Social Credit.
Following the resignation of the leader, Stephnie de Ruyter, the conference voted for a new leader.
He is Chris Leitch, who was the party’s deputy leader.
Mr Leitch has stood as a candidate on five occasions, most recently in Whangarei.
He is the Party’s finance spokesperson.
Social Credit stood its first candidate for parliament in 1953, and has stood candidates in every election since.
It has had six MPs elected in its history.
