MMP referendum bill – 6 days left to make a submission

by frog

The fight to keep MMP is on.

The bill to set up the MMP referendum is now at Select Committee. You have a chance to have your say by making a submission – do it now submissions close next week on Thursday 10 June.

If you are keen to make a submission, check out our guide.

The bill has a proposal that will undermine the contest of idea in the run-up to the Referendum

The proposal is that there is no campaign spending cap. This gives open slather to wealthy groups to buy the result they want.

MMP is a fair system for everyone. It is only right that there are campaign spending caps in place to ensure that the vote on the future of New Zealand’s democracy is also fair.

If you would like to get involved in keeping this cornerstone of our democracy, have a look at the Campaign for MMP website.
