Negative views disappoint
As someone who was a National Party voter at the previous three elections and who decided it was time for a change, I’m disappointed to read all the negative letters criticising the way our new Government has been formed, particularly labelling it undemocratic. What about the Key government’s decision to proceed with state asset sales, claiming they had a mandate, without holding a referendum and having gained under 50 per cent of the vote and polls showing more than 60 per cent apposed? That was undemocratic. Yes, MMP may not be perfect but it's better than FPP.
