Radio NZ debate on MMP

Radio NZ is hosting a debate on MMP and the electoral system referendum. The debate will be moderated by Julian Robbins and Philippa Tolley.

The debate will be held on Wednesday 26 October starting at 6 pm and you can be part of the audience at Te Papa’s Soundings Theatre. It will be broadcast on National Radio after the 8 am news on Sunday 30 October, and also available online at

The panel for the debate is

  • Rt Hon Jim Bolger, former Prime Minister
  • Hon Michael Cullen, former Deputy Prime Minister
  • Hon Ruth Richardson, former Finance Minister
  • Jeanette Fitzsimons, former Green co-leader
  • Sandra Grey, Campaign for MMP
  • Jordan Williams, Vote for Change
  • Professor Nigel Roberts

I think it will be fascinating to listen to, and find out who supports which system, and why. Fitzsimons will be MMP of course. I understand both Bolger and Richardson may actually agree on their preferred option! And not sure where Cullen sits.
