Coalition Agreement Labour Nz First

On 11 June, due to internal opposition from NZ First, the Labour-led coalition government abandoned its efforts to appeal the Sentencing and Mot Reform Act 2010. [41] [42] [43] Ardern confirmed that after the birth of her child, she would temporarily cede her duties to Winston Peters for a period of six weeks. Peters became prime minister in office on June 20, 2018, when Ardern gave birth. Her six-week maternity leave ended on August 2, 2018 [44] [45] On September 13, 2019, Prime Minister Ardern and Police Minister Nash announced that the government would introduce a gun law in late September. The new bill would establish an online gun registry to stop the flow of guns to criminal hells. [188] [189] The coalition agreement between the Labor Party and New Zealand First was published today and sets out the political plans for the new government. On December 11, 2018, the government passed legislation to amend the Misuse of Drugs Act 1975 to allow terminally ill patients to use marijuana for palliative care. The new law was supported by all parties in the coalition, but rejected by the opposition National Party, which argued that it would legalize the recreational use of cannabis. [67] [68] On December 18, the government announced that it would hold a binding referendum on the legalization of personal cannabis use in the 2020 parliamentary elections. [69] [70] In early December, Education Minister Chris Hipkins introduced the Education and Training Act 2019. This omnibus law aims to ease restrictions on teachers who use violence, make religious education optional, and focus more on the Waitangi contract. The bill passed first reading with the support of Labor and its coalition partners NZ First and the Greens, but was rejected by the National and ACT parties. [207][208] In addition, Prime Minister Ardern announced that the government would invest $400 million in modernising school buildings, with each school being allocated between $50,000 and $400,000 depending on the role of the school.

New Zealand First has met or partially met about 80% of the commitments made in the agreement that sealed the coalition government agreement in 2017. On 3 July, the New Zealand Educational Institute, the national trade union organisation for primary school teachers, announced that teachers and school heads would go on strike on 15 August, after the Ministry of Education rejected their request for a 16% salary increase. [50] [51] On July 12, 2018, 30,000 nurses went on strike for 24 hours; the first such national strike in thirty years. .
