Our policies

The Internet Party was founded on the spirit of the internet, to help build an open, free, fair, connected and innovative society. Check out our 2017 policies.
No More Empty Houses

We will work to implement a practical solution to house all New Zealanders, that will both decrease the welfare burden and help to cool the overinflated property market. We will:

  • Mandate that all empty investment properties be made available for rent at market rates, and provide a digital platform that matches homeowners with vetted tenants. We will ensure affected properties are maintained in pristine condition, and relinquished for resale after the appropriate timeframe has passed.
Renewable Energy

We call for urgent action to protect New Zealand's environment and build a clean, sustainable economy. We will:

  • Set a goal of 100% of electricity generated from renewable sources by 2025 and work to turn New Zealand into a world leader in green technologies.
  • Develop a global green data centre in New Zealand, and tackle e-waste while supporting smart cities and smart homes.
  • Impose an immediate moratorium on risky mineral extraction and waste disposal, and enhance environmental protection, including carbon pricing and biodiversity.

Animal Welfare

We recognise the decades of scientific evidence, undertaken around the world, which proves animals are sentient beings (that animals can feel pain and distress). We believe animal cruelty should not be tolerated for economic reasons or impact. This includes the welfare of animals being compromised for entertainment. We will work to:

  • Ban all live exports, including export for slaughter and breeding (and close all loopholes that categorise “livestock”). This is a trade in suffering.
  • Phase out ‘Factory Farming’ practices; stop any future ‘intensive farming’ (including the intensification of dairy) and help collaborate with the industry to promote humane and sustainable farming practices instead.
