Rt Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First
Allegations raised this morning by Stuff Limited / Fairfax concern a party matter but I am confident that New Zealand First has operated within electoral laws, now and for the last 27 years. Declarable donations were declared to the Electoral Commission.
Our system of democracy is based on the secrecy of the ballot and privacy of party memberships and donations within specified limits.
We look forward to discussing this matter with the Electoral Commission.
