Compare Parties


When we began the Doing Our Bit campaign in June 2013 only the Greens and United Future had explicit policy on increasing our refugee quota. Since then every elected political party in the country has come out with a higher quota.

* Quota will grow to 1000 in July 2018. Before then an emergency quota adds 250 places per annum.
Māori Party wants an unspecified increase beyond 1000.

Act wants increase based on 1987 figure (800 places) adjusted by population growth since then (46%).

Is it really true that last time Bill English was National's leader he wanted to cut the quota to just 500 places

But which party is most like Trump

And which party was the first to declare policy that they saw doubling the quota as too conservative?

Below are the latest policy positions and comments we could find for each of these parties:
