Our Story

about-cont-img.jpgNew Zealand First was formed in 1993 to represent those New Zealanders concerned about the social and economic direction of our country following the economic reforms of the fourth Labour and fourth National governments.

The Party was founded on "Fifteen Fundamental Principles" that emphasise accountable and transparent government, commonsense social and economic policy, and placing the interests of our country and its people at the forefront of Government decision making. 

Today, New Zealand First is a party that focusses on pragmatism and common sense in the wake of extreme political ideological and bureaucratic capture of successive governments. 

As a grassroots movement, New Zealand First is committed to representing forgotten New Zealanders and advocating for support by connecting with the various communities across the country.

Bring Back Balance

After years of sacrifice through Covid, New Zealand is not represented by a political party that puts their interests at the heart of decision making. Extreme policies from both the left and right dominate public debate and detrimentally influence government policy direction.

What's missing is the voice of reason to put the needs of our country and our people first again. Our mantra is for unity, not division. For cohesion, not separatism.

New Zealand First is the only party that brings balance and stability to government.

Bring Back Experience

Experience is vital in navigating the complex challenges that are upon us. Current government ministers have failed to deliver a coherent plan that puts New Zealand first again.

Our track record of pragmatism and policy delivery is needed to support and rebuild a prosperous nation facing further uncertainty.

Our team understands that the government is there, regardless of gender or race, to provide its people with security, freedom, and equality.

With your support, we will ensure that New Zealand becomes a world leader again.

Bring Back Commonsense

The introduction of legislation such as the undemocratic Three Waters law, and the focus of racially preferential policy is a concern to all New Zealanders.

Our country must instead address skyrocketing housing and living costs, infrastructure and employment woes, and the alarming law and order issues we are experiencing daily in our communities.

New Zealand First delivers practical and tangible policies that benefit all of New Zealand.

Bring back New Zealand First

Now more than ever, New Zealand First is needed to ensure these issues are addressed with balance, experience, and commonsense.

We will ensure we focus on the real issues that matter to you.

We believe in accountable and transparent government, and commonsense social and economic policy. We will continue to put the interests of New Zealand, and New Zealanders, at the forefront of government decision making.

In order to make that a reality we need like-minded Kiwis to take the first step and support the party committed to putting New Zealand First.
