On the 20th of September 2014 New Zealanders over the age of 18 will be voting on which political party they want to vote for . The election doesn’t just happen in New Zealand it will happen somewhere in your community:school or a church,Not everyone agrees on who to vote who will you be voting for ?
Education,Education is one of the most important issues in the up coming elections,the National Party and the Labour Party like the national standards because they can find the students who need a bit more help than others.In comparaison the Maori Party like the national standards but think some things need to be changed.While the Green Party ,New Zealand First Party,United Future Party ,Mana Party and the Act Party don't want the national standards to be used in schools to show the students learning.In the same way the Conservative Party like the national standards but wouldn't use them.
Heathcare is one of the most important issues in the up coming election, the National Party,Labour Party and the Act Party all want to extend free doctor visits for children up to the age of 13 .In a similar manner the New Zealand First Party and the Conservative Party want to have free doctor vists for all primary school children.On the Other Hand the Green Party,United Future Party and the Maori Party want to extend free doctor visits for children until the age of 18.
Enviroment,the Enviroment is not one of the most important things people look at in the elections. the National party and the New Zealand First Party said that DOC like all governerment departments have had to make significant savings with the previous budget cuts and that the Enviroment is our tourism trump card.Although the Labour Party and the Maori Party say that the department of conservation play a crucial role in proctecting New Zealand’s most valueble water and land.In comparision the Green Party and the ACT Party want to put total buget cuts in for the department of conservation the ACT Party want to make budget cuts up to 28.64 milion while the Green Party want to make bugets cuts up to 4.6 million.Although the United Future Party say that funding to consrevation should increase when financial conditions allow.As well as the Mama Party want people to care more about the earth and enviroment. While the Conservative Party don't want to change anything .
In conclusion the nine different parties are trying to do everything possible to get your vote.Overall I personally think that National are going to do the best for New Zealand and the people of New Zealand because of all the effort they have put in with this years election .
