Green Party's top priority: Stop asset sales

The Greens have outlined their priorities for 2013.

At the party's annual 'picnic for the planet' in Auckland today, co-leader Metiria Turei identified stopping asset sales and getting Government backing for the Auckland CBD rail link as high priorities.

She says the party also wants to protect New Zealand schools this year as they are currently under attack.

"But these are three of the campaigns that the Greens will be running over the next 12 months and that any New Zealander who wants to be involved can come and be involved in that. There's lots of good Green change that can be made if we join together as a movement to make that change happen."

Metiria Turei says the Green Party wants to bring democracy back to politics.

The MP says the campaign the Greens are launching is called "I'm in for the future" where people can sign up and have a political voice.

"We know that there are thousands of New Zealanders who want to express their political voice and they want to make good change and they just need an opportunity to do that."

Ms Turei says the party's number one priority for 2013 is to stop asset sales by collecting the final signatures needed to force a referendum.
