Destiny NZ buoyed by poll

Destiny New Zealand sees latest political opinion poll as an encouraging start to its political future

New political party Destiny New Zealand is eyeing a spot in parliament.

The political offshoot of Brian Tamaki’s Destiny Church has shown up in the latest TV3/TNS Opinion poll. It has come in ahead of the Alliance, Progressive and Christian Heritage parties, with just under one percent support.

Destiny leader Richard Lewis says the party is looking forward to next year’s election and is keen to continue challenging other parties. He says their vision is to build and strengthen New Zealand families.

Richard Lewis says they are looking forward to being in a position to make good decisions for families, for future generations. He says it is difficult for a new party out of the blocks to get noticed on the polling radar.

Mr Lewis says the party is starting to demonstrate strong organisation, leadership and message and is looking forward to next year’s election.

Destiny New Zealand has leapfrogged the Alliance, Progressive and Christian Heritage parties.
