Leader, DemocracyNZ I Northland farmer I Former MP for Northland
Matt has a BSc from the University of Auckland, and completed 14 years in the NZ Police – ending up as a detective based in the mid North.
On leaving the Police, Matt set up a private investigation company alongside his other business enterprises.
Matt is a member of the Okaihau volunteer fire brigade, and was a Northland senior rugby referee.
Developing a lively and progressive economy, and addressing the needs and issues of the community at large, are matters close to his heart – they are things that matter to us as Kiwis.
These are some of the very reasons he started DemocracyNZ, and plans to run in the 2023 election.
Matt plans to run in the Northland seat, as well as across the country for the Party Vote.
With experience in Parliament, and a pragmatic approach to dealing with tricky issues – Matt is here to represent those whose voices have not been heard, so we can get our country back on track.
Matt King …. Leader, DemocracyNZ
Northland farmer …. Former MP for Northland
Plus completed 14 years in the NZ Police
Matt who has a ‘clean slate’ as a former policeman plus an MP was issued a Trespass
Notice yesterday … NO CHARGES .
In my view this is a total injustice and highlights the affect on NZs democracy
Trevor Mallard and this Govt have acted unfairly and done everything consistently when they ordered the trespass order against Matt (more than two months later after the Parliament Anti-Mandate Protest. Especially as Matt never did anything wrong)
This Government has forgotten what true democracy looks like!!
The courts have found the lockdown was illegal, the mandates were illegal, and MIQ was illegal.
Matt Stands by his time in Parliament alongside Kiwis :
Hypocrisy instead of democracy.
Today, I got served a trespass order relating to my time at the Wellington protest in February – more than two months later.
Peaceful protesting (which is what it was when I was there both times), is allowed in the Bill of Rights. I was clear about promoting a peaceful presence, and I did not break any laws being there.
This is yet another breach of our democracy, a total suppression of free speech – and just the way this Govt tries to control and stop people from speaking up for what’s right. This is yet another reason I started DemocracyNZ – we cannot let this rubbish carry on.
The courts have found the lockdown was illegal, the mandates were illegal, and MIQ was illegal. Can anyone name one significant aspect of the COVID response that hasn’t been found to be illegal?
Their modus operandi seems to be tyranny.
