Candidates

Nominations are open, for CommunityVoice.nz candidates for the 2017 general elections, via our Contact page. Policy page is under production.

“1.3 Unregistered political parties
Unregistered parties can contest a general election, or by-election, by standing electorate candidates. They cannot contest the party vote.
A candidate standing on behalf of an unregistered party may have the name of the party listed on the ballot paper with their name, but not a party logo. For the name of an unregistered party to appear on the ballot paper, the Commission must be satisfied:
the party exists
the candidate is eligible to stand on behalf of the party, and
the name of the party is not indecent, offensive, excessively long or likely to cause confusion.
Unregistered parties are not subject to the ongoing statutory requirements that registered parties must satisfy.”
