Bulletin 7/3/2017

Summary:

National confirms their policy of raising superannuation eligibility from 65 to 67 years old – that’s over $30,000 less for each person, the argument being that life expectancy is rising so people get that money at the other end.  Policy takes effect in 20 years, meaning it’ll affect anyone less than 45 years old today – this means the majority of likely voters will not be personally affected, though their children will.

Jacinda Ardern is elected Labour’s deputy leader, a move that is expected to appeal to younger voters – although, historically, older voters have had higher turnouts.
