I also thank you for coming today.

It is not hard to understand the media interest in the Conservative Party, we are New Zealand’s 5 highest polling party and on the cusp of entering parliament in 2017.

Our core policies of social and fiscal conservatism do resonate with many New Zealand voters evidenced not only by voter support but also our growing membership and supporter base.

As Colin has advised there is a desire to engage in a discussion...

“The capital gains tax announced by National is a sticking plaster approach that will do little to address the real housing problem in Auckland”,  says Conservative Party Leader Colin Craig. “What we need is a real solution.”
“The only certain outcome of more taxes is bigger government; but bigger government is not the solution,” says Mr Craig.  “A National Government should know better than to introduce a new tax that will be the thin en...

THANK YOU from Colin
10 November 2014

Thank you for all your support in the 2014 Election Campaign.

Election night was a night of mixed emotions for us all. So much hard work, and a much improved result, This of course was disappointing, but represents a new challenge as we look forward to making it into Parliament in 2017.

Our support grew by nearly 50% a higher growth rate than any other party, and deservedly so given the tremendous hard work and effort put into the Campaign. We contributed to the debates and gave voters a real alternative to the same old thing. I know how very hard our team worked across the country.

As a Party that is less than 3 years old we are continuing to grow and thrive and the future looks very good indeed. The 2017 plan is already underway and I will update you further on this in the next few weeks. In the meantime thank you to all our hard working volunteers, please take the time to rest and recuperate.

Your support is invaluable and we look forward to more positive things to come.

The Head Office has relocated back to 5 Triton Drive, the postal address, phone numbers and emails remain unchanged. Please do email to make appointments, rather than just drop in, as volunteers are staffing the office and it is not always open.

Thank you again for your ongoing support and the many hundreds of encouraging emails that have been coming in. Both Helen and I appreciate you all.

I look forward to catching up soon.
Kindest Regards
Colin Craig

THANK YOU from Christine
24 September 2014

I want to start by saying a big thank you to our faithful members and supporters. We so appreciate everything you have done in support of the Party in the lead up to our 2014 campaign. We do need to see this as fantastic progress and be encouraged by the fact that we will be there next time without fail.

We have learned so much, and at just three years old, the future for us is bright. Our Country still needs us and we still need you behind us.

We came so close at 4.1%, and yes, it was very disappointing that we didn't make it through on Saturday evening, however, we have grown to over 8500 members and supporters and we are still the fastest growing party in the country.

Your support is invaluable and we look forward to more positive things to come.

Yours sincerely
Christine Rankin CEO Conservative Party NZ
and the team here at HQ

"John Key's failure to deliver on his promise to change the anti-smacking law is costing National votes, and helping the Conservative Party," says Colin Craig.
“Parents are smacking down John Key, and this stupid law.”
"The Conservative Party is constantly receiving messages of support, with people referencing the anti-smacking law as a primary reason for changing their vote."
"The Conservative Party has consistently campaign...
