Fitz­patrick runs

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The Lib­er­tar­i­anz Party will stand deputy leader Sean Fitz­patrick in next month’s Mana by-elec­tion.

The by-elec­tion, to be held on Novem­ber 20, is to re­place Labour’s Win­nie La­ban who has re­signed.

Fitz­patrick stood for the Ohariu elec­torate in the 2008 gen­eral elec­tion.

The Lib­er­tar­i­anz Party had an op­ti­mistic and pos­i­tive view of the elec­torate’s peo­ple, he said. The party, founded in 1995, ad­vo­cates self-govern­ment and lim­it­ing the power of the govern­ment over the in­di­vid­ual.

The party once had well-known broad­caster Lind­say Perigo as leader.
