Neg­a­tive views dis­ap­point

The New Zealand Herald - - EDITORIAL & LETTERS -

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.
