It is important to provide information on what leaders and parties believe, highlight key legislation and policies that are of special interest to our unique audience (End of Life Choice Bill and Cannabis), and to maintain political neutrality. We have used the line "pray for our democracy, be informed, vote wisely".
We believe that Christians should be praying for the election.
Our coverage will include:
- Gary Hoogvliet interviewing some of New Zealand's prominent Christian communicators discussing politics, ethics, and democracy.
- Andrew Urquhart interviewing the leaders of New Zealand's major political parties. What are their policies, and how will they represent you if elected?
- 'The Panel' hosted by Andrew Urquhart and Eloise Packham, a series of panel discussions with leading thinkers and experts about a variety of topics relating to the election and referendums.
- The Morning Wakeup will feature a series presented by Tash McGill called 'Perspective', navigating the opinions and perspectives of Kiwi thinkers from all sides of the political spectrum on 8 key election issues.
The election season will culminate with a day of prayer for the election on all our brands from 6am until 11pm on the 16th of October.
We plan on broadcasting from Wellington, Christchurch, and Auckland on the night of the prayer day and will bring together some of the countries Christian leaders to pray for the election and the nation.
