Libertarianz Announces Wellington Region Electorate Candidates

24 September 2008 01:01:00

Libertarianz welcomes Helen Clark’s claim that this election will be fought on the issue of “trust”.  Unlike Labour and National, Libertarianz are the only party that trusts New Zealanders to decide what to eat, how to discipline their children, and how to spend their money – in short, Libertarianz trusts people to run their own lives.

We were the only party to challenge Helen Clark in court over her abuse of trust when she “misappropriated” $800,000 worth of taxpayers’ money to fund her 2005 election campaign.  Our successful legal challenge forced Clark to bring in retrospective legislation to avoid answering the charges in the High Court.

The Libertarianz party is proud to present our trustworthy candidates for the Wellington region.
