Act’s Coalition Expectations and Its Demands from National: Insights from David Seymour on The Front Page
New Zealand’s general election is just around the corner, and it looks like Act Party leader David Seymour has taken the opportunity to express his party’s coalition expectations and demands from the National Party. In an interview with The Front Page, Seymour revealed that Act has three key demands for any possible coalition with the National Party.
Act’s Three Key Demands
The first demand is for National to agree to a flat tax rate, meaning all taxpayers would pay the same percentage of their income in taxes. Seymour argues that this will help simplify the tax system and boost economic growth.
The second demand is for National to support Act’s Education Amendment Bill, which would give more power to principals and boards of trustees. According to Seymour, this bill would help to improve educational outcomes and raise standards across the board.
Finally, Act is also demanding that National support a referendum on euthanasia, which would give New Zealanders an opportunity to vote on whether or not they believe that people should have the right to choose to end their own lives, with medical assistance, if they are terminally ill.
The Importance of These Demands
Seymour makes it clear that these demands are not negotiable and that Act will not enter a coalition with National if they are not met. He argues that these demands are crucial for Act’s vision of creating a better New Zealand and that they are essential for the party to achieve its goals.
Seymour provided his insights on The Front Page, saying “We need a simple tax system that encourages people to work hard and get ahead, an education system that gives every child the opportunity to reach their potential, and a compassionate end of life care system that allows people to die with dignity.”
