New Zealand should be the fairest, most decent society in the world. And we can get there together by focussing on the positive things that really matter to Kiwi families. Labour will put people first. We’ll make sure there are more affordable homes, that there are more secure jobs with higher wages, and that our kids get the best start. Vote positive and vote Labour for a better New Zealand.

David Cunliffe, Leader of the Labour Party

Our values

  • Work

    Labour’s Economic Upgrade policy package will deliver better jobs and higher incomes for all New Zealanders - as we move to a cleaner, smarter, and higher-value economy.
  • Home

    Everyone should have the chance to own their own home but home ownership rates are the lowest they’ve been in 50 years. We’ll restore this Kiwi dream by making home ownership and rent more affordable.
  • Family

    We’ll make sure all Kiwi kids get the best start in life. Our policies will give parents more time to be parents and will empower young people to succeed at school and out in our communities.
