As we approach the elections, political parties and their leaders need to commit to fighting corruption and promoting transparency in all levels of governance. New Zealand deserves a government that is honest, open, and accountable to its citizens.
In an age where information flows freely, and citizens are more engaged than ever in the political process, the call for integrity in government has never been more critical. There are practical ways to see these qualities translated into concrete policies and actions.
Transparency isn't just a buzzword; it's the cornerstone of a healthy democracy. Citizens have the right to know how their government operates, how taxpayer funds are allocated, and how decisions are made on their behalf. Moreover, trust in political leadership hinges on their ability to combat corruption effectively. Therefore, we are urging all political parties and their leaders to rise to the occasion and commit to a robust framework for combating corruption and enhancing transparency at all levels of governance.
We are urging parties to support this vision by taking concrete policy actions.
Promises to Action
