The new Government refuses to release an agreement between the Labour Party and New Zealand First about the rules and expectations of Ministers under the coalition.
The document, apparently 38 pages long, is alleged to contain Ministerial directives and strategy for the coalition government.
That document is of obvious public importance – yet the Prime Minister’s Office has refused to release it in responses to requests under the Official Information Act. Incredibly, Ms Ardern claims the document doesn’t represent “official information”.
We say that’s absurd, taxpayers and the public are entitled to know what it contains.
Jacinda Ardern made much of transparency and freedom of information while in opposition. We say she should walk the walk, not just talk the talk on freedom of information, and obey the Official Information Act by releasing the secret agreement. If you agree, add your name to the petition below.
With your support we can make the Taxpayers' Union a strong voice exposing waste and standing up for Kiwi taxpayers.
Often the best information comes from those inside the public service or local government. We guarantee your anonymity and your privacy.
