Good news for fake news, with a satirical political party successfully registering just in time for the election.
The Electoral Commission has announced the Civilian Party has got enough members on board to contest the election.
The party was born out of parody news website The Civilian, and promises free ice cream for everyone, and making the rest of New Zealand independent from Hamilton.
I’m glad they made it. Of all the joke parties standing for Parliament, they’re the only funny one!
