NZ First’s Fifteen Fundamental Principles

1) New Zealand First

Put New Zealand & New Zealanders First.

2) Open Accountable Governance

Open accountable government with less government. Parliament will be reduced and the numbers of consultancies and government advisers will be cut by over 50 per cent. Only on a vote of confidence in a Government (in which New Zealand First is a member) will New Zealand First’s Members of Parliament be required to vote with the party. On all other issues not covered by party policy, an MP’s first duty is to the electorate and the nation.

3) Export-Led Economics

Economic policy will comprise a strategy for export-led economic development to add value to our resources, relying on independent business expertise with government support to encourage economic success.

4) Employing New Zealanders

The employment of New Zealanders is our first planning priority. High unemployment is not acceptable. We regard such human and economic waste as a blight on this country’s productivity.

5) Education as an Investment

Money spent on education will be treated as an investment, not as expenditure. Educational advancement is both in the national and in the individual interest. Educational investment is critical for economic and social recovery.

6) Rebuilding Public Health

Health will cease to be a balance sheet item. Health will be a critical investment in New Zealand’s human resource. Our policies will rebuild New Zealand’s public health service.

7) Less Tax

Our long-term objective is New Zealanders paying less tax. We intend to simplify and enforce the tax laws so that they apply equally to all taxpayers. Incentives for increased research and development and export growth are the priorities.

8) Upskilling New Zealanders

Whilst this country, with such a small population, will continue to require an infusion of overseas skills and expertise, immigration will cease to be used as an excuse for our failure to train, skill and employ our own people.

9) More from Welfare

The Welfare State must be an umbrella to meet genuine and deserving need. Government has a duty to properly determine those needs and respond to them. That said, social welfare must no longer neglect assisting recipients to become independent of the State.

10) Focused Foreign Policy

Our foreign policy objective will be good government at home and being a reliable neighbour in our region. New Zealand foreign aid will focus on the region in which we live. New Zealanders desire for a non-nuclear future will be respected.

11) Proactive Environmental Policy

Wise Governments view the preservation and enhancement of the environment as sound economics. All environmental policies will be proactive with a view to creating employment and sustainable wealth whilst improving one of our few competitive advantages.

12) Ceasing State Asset Sales

Strategic state asset sales will cease. If considered appropriate and only where absolutely necessary, management by private contracts under public ownership will replace the policy of state asset sales.

13) Anti-Corruption Commission

An independent anti-corruption commission will be established to enable New Zealanders to have confidence that their institutions are working properly.

14) Electoral Reform by Electors

Electoral reform will be determined by the electors. The Government’s duty will be to ensure the fair representation of all views and the holding of appropriate referenda.

15) The People’s Policies

All policies not contained in the party manifesto, where no national emergency clearly exists, will first be referred to the electorate for a mandate.

About this Organisation

New Zealand First was formed in July 1993 to represent the views of New Zealanders concerned about the economic and social direction of their country, the sale of public assets to foreign control, and the decline in employment and social services. The party’s vision is to put people first through enlightened economic and social policies, by controlling resources and by restoring faith in the democratic process.

New Zealand First was started by founding members and Winston Peters, the MP for Tauranga and former Minister of Maori Affairs. He had left the National Party after disputes with its leadership over broken election promises about the economy and an extra tax on the elderly. Peters resigned from Parliament and Tauranga voters re-elected him in a special by-election as an independent.
