Phil Goff has signed a pledge that Labour will not sell Kiwibank if it becomes government. Other party leaders have been invited to sign as well. I expect the Greens, New Zealand First, Mana, and the Conservatives will (who knows about the Maori Party).
But will Key sign? He refused to sign a similar pledge in 2008. National is secretly itching to sell Kiwibank, Bill English got caught out admitting as much saying in 2008 that, under National Kiwibank would be sold sell Kiwibank “eventually, but not now”.
