Dr. Gaurav Sharma launches NZ Momentum Party – ‘Country before Party’

NZ Momentum Party news

The Independent MP for Hamilton West is hard on the campaign trial for the upcoming byelection.

In a statement published on his Facebook page Sharma outlined his vision for the new party.

‘We are at a crucial point in New Zealand’s history. Daylight robbery and ram raids have become a daily occurence and our health system is struggling with long waiting lists due to mismanagement and underinvestment.

‘Not only has the government spent $500 million on a botched up health reform without any consultation with stakeholders and frontline healthcare workers, another $200 million has been spent on centralisation of tertiary education, with $350 million on its way to being spent on TVNZ & RNZ merger. Our housing crisis is one of the worst in the world, and in the last 5 years the government has only built 1,400 KiwiBuild homes out of the 100,000 promised.

‘Compared to 2017, there are 21,000 more people on the emergency housing waiting list, with many families sleeping in cars. Whether it’s healthcare, hospitality, teaching, aged-care, farming or retail, workforce shortages across different sectors along with unchecked crime is driving businesses and organisations to close.

‘New Zealanders need to feel safe again walking the streets or going to the mall in the weekend. We need to be able to access health services in a timely manner both in the community and in hospitals. We need affordable housing and better public transport.

‘We need our kids and adults to have the best mental health support system so we can tackle our high suicide rates. Throwing money at the problem won’t solve the issues by themselves. Good policy along with wide stakeholder engagement is necessary to make sure that outcomes are not just promised but also delivered in a timely manner.

‘We need a change. A change from the large parties with big mandates who have failed to deliver and failed to listen to the grassroots voice on many issues – from health and education reforms to three waters, immigration and workforce development. We are at a point where we need to leave our ideological echo chambers behind and focus on addressing the core issues plaguing New Zealand by putting country before party.

‘We have Momentum >>

  1. Wrong move to start a new party; just remain as independent and take time and join an existing party such as NZFirst or TOP. Critical mass is important to sustain.

    MSM parties will consume Sharma and he wont be remembered after an year. Single leader and single issue parties will not survive. MSM will make sure the demise of Momentum party.

    • NZ First, Momentum, New Conservative, plus the Outdoors & Freedom Party NEED TO MERGE AND FORM ONE VIABLE THIRD POLITICAL PARTY!
      And; it needed to be done yesterday!!!
      The Leaders and Officers of the above-mentioned Political Parties need to put aside their differences, and get busy trying to save this country!
      National & Luxom is just the other side of the World Economic Forum coin, and he & national will pick-up where Ardern leaves off; that being destroying NZ and making us a vassal state of the WEF / NWO under Zio-Communism, and Talmudic Noahide Law on a global scale!

  2. he backed the vaccines !! Lets not forget .. he backed mandates, people loosing their jobs .. people being forced to take something into their body to keep there jobs to exercise the most basic human rights . guilty as the rest!

  3. Yup, just what we need. Another minor party.

    Personally, he would have done better (if it’s on his conscience at all) to repent publicly (not only be sorry for, but turn completely away from) his involvement in govt around the vaccine fiasco.

    Once done, align himself with a minor party that’s closest to his values, and support them. He should find one, there is a lot of them out there now!

    Unless this is all by design, of course.
