NZ parties' logos
by James Dignan, 22 September 1997

[ In 1997 ], six parties are represented in NZ's parliament: The government is a coalition of the right-of-centre National Party (NZ's conservative/republican equivalent) and New Zealand First, a slightly-further-right populist party. Occasionally supporting, occasionally against them are the right wing economic radicals of the Association of Consumers and Taxpayers (read: Thatcherites) and the centrist United Party (which has just one seat of the 120 in NZ's parliament). The opposition is led by Labour (left of centre) and the Alliance, a coalition of five smaller parties including New Labour (a bit further left of centre), Mana Motuhake (Maori sovereignty) and the Greens. These logos are drawn freehand, so the lettering on the ACT logo and the fluttering flag of the Labour logo are a bit less wonderful than I would have liked.

The current government is a centre-left coalition of Labour (in their second term), United Future, and the Green Party. During the elections in July 2002, the former ruling National Party suffered its worst defeat ever.
Sam Lockton, 2002
