Murfitt is a strong advocate for human rights and freedoms.
Over the past two years she has authored a series of widely-read open letters to politicians, the police, the Governor-General and the Head of the Defence Force which raised serious questions over the legality and ethics of the governments mRNA ‘vaccine’ roll-out and the consequent clamp-down on basic freedoms and rights.
Her profile on the party’s website states she ‘felt a moral duty to speak out as a lawyer in recent years to protect our fundamental democratic principles for future generations. This has ultimately led her to play an active role in politics, by standing as a candidate for DemocracyNZ. Kirsten shares the passion and determination that Matt and our other DemocracyNZ candidates have to get our country back on track.’
She joins leader Matt King as the party builds its candidate list heading into this year’s election, a list which, in addition to King (Northland) also includes Taranaki-King Country candidate Lee Smith, and Waikato candidate Steve Cranston.
