There can be no doubt whatsoever that Labour never intended this to happen when they passed the Electoral Finance Act.
Labour Party signs have been removed from the front of the Dunedin South electorate office to comply with the Electoral Finance Act, Dunedin South MP David Benson-Pope says.
Mr Benson-Pope was contacted yesterday after confusion from the public over the removal of the signs from the King Edward St office, which he shares with Labour MP for Te Tai Tonga, Mahara Okeroa.
“It is nothing anyone should let their imagination work overtime about,” he said.
The removal of party signage from electorate offices was “standard right across the country”, he said.
Here’s a small task for readers who might be interested – pop along to your local office, take a photo and drop it into the email. I’m interested if this is just a one-off or if Labour has had to take this humiliating step across the country!
