NATIONAL'S POLICY VISION

Gangs have been an unwelcome part of New Zealand’s criminal scene for several decades, but over the last five years their numbers and the level of violence they are willing to engage in have increased markedly. New Zealand gangs have added more than 2,000 new members to their ranks since 2017, a 45% increase. Over this time we have seen a significant escalation in gang-related violence, public intimidation and shootings, with violent crime up 21%.

National believes New Zealanders deserve to feel safe in their homes and communities. That means we need to take action to reverse the growth of gangs, reduce their ability to engage in criminal behaviour, and prevent them from further endangering the lives and livelihoods of law- abiding Kiwis.

CHRISTOPHER LUXON

Leader of the National Party

It's an incredible privilege and honour to have been elected Leader of the New Zealand National Party. I bring a fresh set of eyes, and what I see is that this country needs a shake-up..

If you are one of the 413,000 voters who moved away from us, my message to you is: from today, National is back. I have built a career out of reversing the fortunes of underperforming companies and I'll bring that real-world experience to this role. Under my leadership, National will use our breadth of talent and real-world experience every day to deliver for each and every New Zealander.
