If Luxon is serious about putting New Zealand first for a change, then a big part of that would be to seriously RECONSIDER repealing the ban on foreign (re: Chinese) property buyers, which has devastated the real estate sector in Canada and Australia by pricing out many domestic buyers from the getting a foot in the property market door. Do not make that same mistake again.

Anyone who votes for right wing parties needs their head checked. Every time NZ votes National in, it does great damage to the country.

Good to see Act getting close to 10% of the vote.

the Cost of living is a joke, how friends and family can afford million dollar plus houses (90000000円) along with food prices that are double or more than Japan is beyond me.

Jacinda handed Hipkins a poisoned chalice. She jumped ship knowing she had doomedLabour to defeat in this election. NZers were glad to see the back of Adhern.

The Politics within each country is different , and should be suited to the needs of that Country alone - if you think about it, what I have said, is pretty basic, though a lot of Politicians try and promote Policies that go beyond their reach. Start at home, fix that first before going further afield.

The National party are more left than the Democratic party of the US.

The US Democratic Party seemed to have swung wildly left to me, although Biden had been portrayed as a moderate.

I am wondering which political parties (besides the US Republicans) 2020 would accept as less left than the Democrats.

Anyways, the thing that gets me is that this NZ “liberal” government became unpopular because of the “restrictions” it imposed.

Maybe remembering what liberal means might see them do better again next time.

The National party didn't impose any restrictions.
