It is crucial to be well informed during the campaigns for these elections.

Parliament is in Session this week

I will go to Parliament  this week on Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th and Thursday 6th. Each session runs from 2pm to 10pm so hope to be there for some of this. These will be the last Parliamentary discussions in the House of Parliament for our Government before the 2020 General Elections. Want to come with me ?

I am interested to find out the topics they will be discussing and Bills they want to pass before they break. These must be very important or urgent! After  the Dissolution of Parliament on August 6, all Members of Parliament will return to their own Electorates to begin their Campaigns for our 2020 Election on September 19. Find your MP and  make an effort to go and hear them speak.

There are five parliamentary parties represented in the 52nd Parliament by 120 MPs. These MPs represent 64 general electorate seats and seven Māori electorates. The other 49 MPs are selected from the party lists. – www.parliament.nz

On September 19 will we have a falling star or a new moon  govern our country ???  Will we continue the slide into socialism or will we regain democracy and freedom this country is famous for. You must decide…..
