Rangitata Electorate

Rob Ballantyne brings a wealth of experience from a background in farming, agribusiness, sales and mentoring. He currently runs his own importing business in the South Island. 

A staunch nationalist, and a proud family man, Rob is focussed on helping New Zealand First restore balance and common sense to parliament. He will be a strong representative for the voices of farmers and the wider rural sector.

Rob grew up on a farm in the Mid Canterbury Hills and will stand in the Rangitata electorate. Inspired by his Grandfather, and Great Grandfather, both hard working entrepreneurs, Rob has put his hand up to represent New Zealand First values, and advocate for democratic equality and sound economic decision making.

His extensive skill set and experience across a range of industries will be invaluable to the New Zealand First team.
