dedicated to hatching political kiwis

WEEKLY ROUNDUP April 30th to May 13th

 

WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THIS WEEK: 

The Local Electoral Matters Bill

The internet: a place to see friends, cat videos, memes, and now, potentially: a place to vote. This bill wants to make a couple of changes to existing acts to make it easier to trial new methods of voting - first by allowing trials to be conducted ward-wide and by allowing electors' age groups to be used in information gathering. 

 

Weapons Control

Basically, this bill says that you can't facilitate the international transfer of a weapon from a place outside NZ to another place outside NZ unless you are registered as a broker and have a permit. Have lots of thoughts about this? Read all about it above!
