Brian Tamaki has announced he is forming a new political party.
The party is called Freedoms New Zealand and is about to be registered as a political party
The new party would be a mix of his wife Hannah’s Vision NZ party and other small political parties, the New Nation Party and Outdoors Party.
Tamaki also wants the Democracy NZ and the New Conservative parties to join and come under the “umbrella of hope”.
Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson said everyone was entitled to run for office and wished the new party good luck.
Any political party in New Zealand needs five percentage points to get a share of the seats in Parliament.
