We extend our sincere thanks to those who voted for ACT in the 2020 election. We will be working to uphold our promise to hold this government to account. If you didn’t vote for us, don’t worry we will be working for you too, so that in 2023 you will be proud to say “I’m voting ACT”.

act's vision for new Zealand

An open and benevolent society in which individual New Zealanders are free to achieve their full potential

ACT was founded in 1993 as the Association of Consumers and Taxpayers by Derek Quigley, a former National cabinet minister and Sir Roger Douglas, the former Labour Minister of Finance. Since we became a political party in 1994, we have consistently been the party of ideas, advocating for expanded personal freedom and responsibility.
