Fi­nan­cial trans­for­ma­tion

Waikato Times - - COMMENT&OPINION -

While over­seas we watched the trans­for­ma­tion of the New Zealand elec­tion sce­nario. The vi­tal­ity of lead­er­ship – this time with Jacinda Ardern in Labour – has added a huge boost to those long-ded­i­cated work­ers in the party.

Those who for what­ever rea­son feel they can­not vote Labour could con­sider the up and com­ing Op­por­tu­ni­ties Party (TOP). One un­der­stands the TV de­bate rules – but TOP alone holds clearly the se­cret to the eco­nomic re­form re­quired in NZ’s ‘‘rich and poor’’ so­ci­ety to be­come ‘‘fair’’ again.

NZ pi­o­neered with the women’s vote, state hous­ing and on the nu­clear is­sue. It will be ‘‘tops’’ again if we can lead by demon­strat­ing a fi­nan­cial trans­for­ma­tion.
