Advance New Zealand

Jump to a party

The Advance New Zealand Party was recently established by Jami-Lee Ross, former National MP and currently an independent MP for Botany. Ross describes the party as an attempt to represent middle-ground voters. It is particularly focussed on electoral reform and anti-corruption policies. Advance recently joined with the unregistered New Zealand Public Party, whose founder, Billy Te Kahika, has previously claimed that the Covid-19 pandemic was planned by the United Nations, and opposes 5G, 1080, fluoridation of water, and vaccination.

Kurt Rohloff
Not currently in parliamentCandidate for Invercargill electorate
Advance New Zealand
My local priorities
Look into a longer term closure of Tiwai, so the Invercargill electorate can prepare for the future. Look into the terrible suicide rate in Southland, which has one of the highest per capita rates in New Zealand. Look into the draconian Resource Management Act which is turning farmers into criminals.
Why I’m running
I am running for parliament in the 2020 election as the Advance NZ candidate because I am disillusioned with the direction the present government is taking us, from a democratic country we grew up in, with freedoms and personal sovereignty. I feel if I don't do something about the disillusionment of people in this country, then what may be left for my children. I don't want them left with a feeling of division, and reality of debt. Not even able to own their own home or have a job to pay for it.
About me
I am a born and bred Southlander and have I've lived in our community my whole life and have a wealth of experience in management in the retail, hospitality and food industry. Owning my own small businesses. at one stage, I'm not a politician, nor am I politically correct, but I'm genuine and a realist who cares for my family and Aotearoa, I have been interested in the geo-political landscape for the past 32 years. I have 2 Beautiful teenage daughters and enjoy the simple things in life.
