New Zealanders Get Behind Head of State Bill

The broad range of supporters of Keith Locke's Head of State Referenda Bill in today's Sunday Star-Times shows growing republican sentiment in New Zealand" said Lewis Holden, chair of the Republican Movement.

Endorsers include businessman Sir Bob Jones, author and presenter Peta Mathias, novelist CK Stead and sportsman Rob Hamill.

"The Republican Movement urges all of New Zealand's political parties to support the Bill to Select Committee. While the referendum itself might not go ahead before the next election, at least New Zealanders will have a chance to express their views at Select Committee" concluded Mr Holden.
