We say no to the farming tax and Zero Carbon Act

20 April 2023

As a Party founded on farming, freedom, and family, we stand with our farming and rural communities.

We have made our position clear since last year - we do not support the climate hysteria that punishes our farmers and rural communities. Farming is the backbone of our economy.  

DemocracyNZ was, in fact, the first party to openly say that we will scrap the unsustainable Zero Carbon Act, and are strongly against the farming tax. We are driven by doing what’s right, not by polls.

Our policies will include an environmental framework that enshrines property rights, and is focused on outcomes rather than restrictions.

We are not afraid to discuss our position on unworkable regulation, such as He Waka Eke Noa. National’s policy says all the right things, but we do not believe in virtue-signalling interventions on sectors like our ag sector - we are already world leaders.

DemocracyNZ believes in less Government intrusion in our lives, and to truly stand with our farming and rural sector - we need bold policy that supports the sector to thrive, not just a whitewash over broken policy.

We will be announcing our farming policy over the coming months before the election, which we believe is fit-for-purpose and helps Kiwis get ahead. We look forward to sharing it.
