Former National MP Matt King plans to launch new political party

Former National MP Matt King has told Newshub he plans to launch a new political party.

King, who represented Northland for National from 2017 to 2020, attended the anti-COVID-19 vaccine mandate protest at Parliament over the weekend.

In a statement, King told Newshub: “It has become abundantly clear that Kiwis are calling out for leadership and somewhere to put their vote because none of the parties in the current political landscape provide a credible alternative to the status quo.

“I have begun discussions with an experienced group of people regarding a political party that represents our fundamental rights as Kiwis.

“After one term in Parliament, I feel I have unfinished business, I will have more to announce in the coming days.”

The former police officer resigned from the National Party last week prior to attending the protest in Wellington.

  1. Awesome. Don’t go woke. There are huge numbers of quiet kiwis who will support a strong leader who has our backs. Great news. Gives hope for the future of this beautiful little country. Best wishes!!!!!

  2. Well done Matt.

    The key thing will be to get the right sort of people in his team. If you are going to get politicians, get very good experienced ones like Stephen Joyce etc. There could be others like Rodney Hide and Muriel Newman who would prefer to help in the background.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if he cherry picked the good guys/ladies out of National. That would kick Luxon where he needs to be kicked.

    Ring up the VFF ladies to run your campaign —if they think your policies align with their thinking.

    • Never joined a political party before, but signed for Nats and Act last year and made donations as I saw them as the way out of this Adern mess.
      How wrong was I?
      I have been insulted, patronised and marginalised.
      I am now what you might call a swinger.
      Give me my life back and I’m all yours.

    • Matt, you have got to do things that few politicians are capable of:

      1) Know your voters. Don’t try to appeal to everyone.

      2) Know that the rotten leftist MSM love the Mad Queen. They will never be your friends.

      3) Stay on message. You don’t have to have a policy or viewpoint on everything.

  3. We need everyone who opposes mandates to say they will support this new party, regardless of actual voting intentions. Imagine if the first poll these guys appeared in had them at 25 or 30%! It would shake up NZ politics like nothing ever seen before.
