ACT believes that all New Zealanders should have the same fundamental rights, regardless of race, religion, sexuality or gender.
ACT wants to see the rural sector given the respect it deserves. New Zealand farmers are the best in the world and they’ve had to confront plenty of challenges recently. But they shouldn’t have to face challenges from their own Government.
ACT’s climate change policy is the best any political party has put forward because it is simple, effective, and is not going to make life more costly for New Zealanders. For those reasons, it will also be the most durable.
Anyone who has experienced the state of New Zealand’s roads recently knows that the current system of relying on the Government to maintain them with your taxes isn’t working. ACT would use public-private partnerships and toll roads to bring accountability and revenue to a 30-year plan, supercharging development and maintenance.
ACT made a commitment to licenced firearms owners that we would start again and rewrite the Arms Act. Now we are making good on that commitment.
New Zealand’s senior citizens have worked hard and contributed their fair share of taxes, yet the Labour Government has let them down when they rely on government competence the most.
Oranga Tamariki has failed our most vulnerable children by avoiding accountability, treating kids as an ethnicity first, and failing to preside over youth justice facilities they never should have been running in the first place.
ACT’s vision is to have the best immigration policy in the world, bringing talented people to our shores with minimal rigmarole enabling New Zealand to solve all of its other problems.
It is critical that New Zealanders have access to safe drinking water and high-quality infrastructure for storm and wastewater. The current system is not up to scratch, but the Government’s Three Waters reforms are not the answer. ACT’s plan will allow community control of water assets.
