Our country is in a political crisis driven by a neo liberal socialist agenda and red tape bureaucracy that renders our nation billions of dollars in debt, with successive governments having signed us up to unattainable international goals, protocols and accords. New Zealand needs a radical overhaul in government and it is the call to action that urges us to bring our convictions into the public sphere, to champion justice, and to cultivate good governance and stewardship.
ONE Party are committed to fostering a participatory and transparent political environment that empowers citizens, promotes accountability, and ensures that every person has a fair chance to thrive. Together we can forge a path towards a society that upholds both spiritual and civic freedoms, where we uplift the marginalised, protect the vulnerable, and create an inclusive society where justice reigns supreme.
One Party have a strong tri-leadership led by Ian Johnson, Kariana Black and Allan Cawood. They bring to the table a wealth of knowledge and expertise.
Ian Johnson heads up the trio. He has a rich work background in dairy farming, national sales, marketing and rural real estate. Ian is an accomplished author and sought after international conference speaker travelling to over 20 countries. Underpinning all Ian’s achievements is his strong Christian faith.
