Equal Values Party


Equal Values Party

The Aotearoa New Zealand Equal Values Party is a small political party in New Zealand. It claims that the "basic requirements for life" are not being met by either of the two main parties in New Zealand politics, and that a new vision is needed for the country.

Its policies include:
*The elimination of student loan debt and the provision of free education.
*Free doctor's visits, medicine, and dental care for those under 19 years old or over 65 years old.
*The increase of social welfare payments.
*The establishment of compulsory workplace savings schemes.
*Tax cuts, particularly for exporters.
*Shorter prison sentences for non-violent crimes and lesser offences, with more focus on restorative justice and home detention sentencing.

The party's leader is Adele Hughes. The party was launched on 27 January 2005, but was never registered with the Electoral Commission, meaning that it could not contest the party vote. During the 2005 election it ran a single candidate, and received 86 votes [ [http://2005.electionresults.govt.nz/e9/html/e9_part1.html New Zealand 2005 general Election: Summary of Overall Results] ] .

The party will not be contesting the 2008 elections, and is now defunct. [cite web |url=http://norightturn.blogspot.com/2008/06/small-parties-die.html |title=Small parties die |publisher=No Right Turn |date=2008-06-28 |accessdate=2008-06-28]
