 New Zealand National Party - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The New Zealand National Party (often colloquially referred to as "the Nats") currently forms the second-largest (in terms of seats) political party represented in the New Zealand Parliament, and thus functions as the core of the parliamentary Opposition.
George Forbes, Prime Minister from 1930 until 1935 and United Party Leader, opened the conference; he became the new party's first leader and served as Leader of the Opposition and of the New Zealand National Party until October, when the party elected Adam Hamilton as Leader.
And as a result of the new electoral mechanics, the New Zealand First Party, led by former National MP and former Cabinet minister Winston Peters, held the balance of power after the 1996 elections.

The history of Catholic journalism in New Zealand is in effect the history of the "New Zealand Tablet," founded by the late Bishop Moran in 1873, the Catholics of this country having followed the principle that it is better to be represented by one strong paper than to have a multiplicity of publications.
New Zealand Catholics have never asked or desired a grant for the religious education which is imparted in their schools.
According to the "New Zealand Official Year-Book" for 1909 (a Government publication) the total number of Catholic schools in the dominion is 152 and the number of Catholic pupils attending is 12,650.

 Press Release: Government snubs award to Timberlands, by Eric Roy, New Zealand National Party.
Clearly under the influence of preservationist extremists such as Forest and Bird and NFA, the New Zealand Department of Conservation Director-General and also their West Coast Regional Conservator, boycotted a ceremony where Timberlands West Coast Limited was awarded a "Most Meritorious Project" award, and the Minister of Conservation, MP Sandra Lee, agreed with them.
This boycott is a blindly dogmatic response in pseudo-political correctness to suit extreme Green ideology, and reveals an appalling blindspot in judgement of the ecological worth of sustainable forest management.
The award was made in unanimous decisions by the West Coast Tai Poutini Conservation Board and the West Coast Regional Council.

In July 1987 the National Party gave its support to the government in a bipartisan non-nuclear policy, and as a result the USA reclassified New Zealand as a ‘friendly’, rather than an ‘allied’, country.
New Zealand's traditional two-party party political system was challenged in December 1991 by the formation of the Alliance Party, comprising the Democratic Party, the New Labour Party (NLP), the Green Party, and the (mainly Maori) New Zealand Self-Government Party.
The New Zealand Division served, with a distinction noted by allies and opponents alike, in Greece, North Africa, and Italy, and New Zealand detachments with the British air force and navy served in the Pacific.

National Front national director Sid Wilson, of Auckland, said his party's logo did not feature an "actual cross" but an organic symbol made up of circles in the colours of traditional western freedom- red, white and blue.
He disputed claims the party was opposed to Christianity, saying it had the most Christian policy of any political party in New Zealand.
It also said the nation held in high regard those who had been awarded the Victoria Cross and for this reason alone, association with a cross with a political party would seem a type of reference that should be avoided in a political party logo.
