Delaying the election was the only decision the Prime Minister could make to ensure a free and fair contest. It also leaves the election wide open: we can win.
Now the Government’s failing public health strategy is up for debate. With more time for New Zealanders to learn the truth about this Government’s performance on Covid-19, we can win on 17 October. ACT has consistently risen in the polls through our positive contribution to this debate. Our opportunity has never been greater.
There is much for voters to consider. This election is not just about a lack of testing, poor contact tracing, and border bungles. The question is more fundamental: If we can’t afford more lockdowns, and we don’t want to be like Sweden, then how can we go forward intelligently? ACT will be providing that answer.
The campaign just got longer and costlier. There are now four more weeks in the run up to the election. We need to spend $100,000 a week in the final weeks of the campaign. Our war room team is busy economising, like so many businesses in New Zealand. However, to win, we need to expand our budget.
ACT has been rising in the polls. But to maintain our momentum, we will need to create more content, and pay for more ads for longer, through our digital channels.

A longer campaign means more time for New Zealanders to hear about this Government’s incompetence and ACT’s comprehensive plan improve our public health response to Covid-19. But that also means we need to buy more digital ads to reach voters for another four weeks.
