Gareth Morgan’s new political party already has more than 750 paid members – with the entrepreneur saying he has been blown away by the response.
Morgan launched the Opportunities Party (Top) on Friday, saying problems like inequality and housing affordability could be solved but not by “establishment” politicians.
He plans to gauge public reaction to his campaign before registering the party next year.
Political parties need 500 financial members to register, and that mark was surpassed by Top within 24 hours of launching.
“I thought would take us months to get those kinds of numbers, particularly given I haven’t released any policy yet!”
People that follow and support you pretty much know what the policy is going to look like Gareth. Good Luck, this will hopefully turn out to be a defining moment in New Zealand’s political history. We urgently need to rethink our social economic policy’s for the betterment of the 90% and the long term survival of our economy.
