With a few weeks until the General Election, what do our political pundits think we'll see come October 17?
New Zealand has faced a global pandemic, an economic downturn, a string of political resignations, and party leadership changes all in the lead up to October 17.
So with the countdown on until New Zealand heads to the voting booth, University academics will share their insights, opinions, and predictions on what the nation could see during and after the election.
Hosted by Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington, you'll hear from Dr Bryce Edwards of The Democracy Project; Professor Jack Vowles, School of History, Philosophy, Political Science and International Relations; and Dr Maria Bargh from Te Kawa a Māui/School of Māori Studies.
This is an opportunity to ask the questions you want answered and get insights on the incoming government.
Registration is essential.
