November 5th, 2016, was far more than an average day in Mt. Roskill. At the Fickling Center in front of more than 300 people, Roshan Nauhira, flanked by his Vice-President Steven Ching, and their Party Secretary Anil Sharma, announced the launch of their NZ People's party, and the Nauhria announcement for candidacy for MP at the forthcoming Mt Roskill by-election. The evening showcased a mix of cultural performers from the electorates Samoan, Chinese and Indian communities.

Speaking strongly and passionately about change, Mr Nauhria spoke of the mix of cultural flavours you can see in his home electorate, and the fact that while that sets a beautiful setting, it's not reflected within the goings on in the beehive. “We can all see the wonder of change on Stoddard Road, where you can find a boat building workshop, a Lebanese Cafe and a Tongan Church that call each other neighbours...driving through Sandringham, a mixture of familiar and new shops filled with people and we all hear it on the streets of Three kings, the many languages mixing as people walk their kids to school. However one place this change is not visible is in the representation of Mt Roskill in the New Zealand Parliament.” says the President.

Speaking to a crowd largely filled by immigrant New Zealanders, but who now call Mt Roskill home, he says that “One or two different looking faces in a political party is not representation, it is an attempt to satisfy us enough so that we will go away quietly.” Nauhria made it clear that he's had enough of the increasing crime rate and wants to enforce better living conditions in rental homes. He also wants to create more opportunities for employment through small business owners.

The New Zealand People's Party stands for change - and that change is starting in Mt Roskill.
