Every Monday until the election The Front Bench will take on the biggest talking points of the election campaign. Heather du Plessis-Allan, Newstalk ZB Senior Political Correspondent Barry Soper, former Business NZ CEO Phil O’Reilly and Auckland Councillor Richard Hills have the insight word and analysis.
This week, the Executive Director of the Taxpayer’s Union Jordan Williams steps in for Barry Soper.
Our expert panel discusses Christopher Luxon confirming he’ll form a Government with Winston Peters if he has to. Does it give New Zealand First more credibility? Could National lose support because of this?
They also dissect Chris Hipkins getting into attack mode but ask, is it simply too late to make a difference in the polls?
Heather asks the panel what they made of the debates last week and whether they’ll change any minds.
Plus, they take a deep dive into the latest policy announcements – including National’s speed limits promise and Labour’s climate manifesto.
