We Say/You Say: MMP

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Whangārei Leader

Hi Whangārei,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Whangārei Leader.

NZTA seems broken

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

I've tried to renew my car's rego online yesterday evening. Could load the nzta website, but the page to renew registration would not load.
I dropped them a line about this ..."we are currently experiencing high volumes of email, we may get back to you in 9 days" ... yeah, right, that will be useful.
This morning their whole website appears to be down. So if you need to register your car, you may have to go to the testing station, assuming *they* can get in.
