New Zealand will go to the polls on 26 November, five weeks after the Rugby World Cup final.
Prime Minister John Key announced the general election date this week to create certainty around the tournament, which begins in September.
National will be campaigning on our record as responsible managers of the economy. We are taking clear steps to get the country’s debt under control and to put the right incentives into the economy to drive faster real growth.
The election will also be about building greater value for money in public services, and who has the better plan to build a safer New Zealand.
Over the coming months we will keep developing and implementing our programme to build the brighter future New Zealanders and their families deserve.
