Aotearoa Party Merges With Rock The Vote NZ Party And John Alcock Elected As Party Leader


Rock The Vote NZ are pleased to announce that the
Aotearoa Party, formerly led by John Alcock, has officially
merged with Rock The Vote NZ Party, and John has been
unanimously elected as the Party Leader.

Rock The Vote
NZ, known for its advocacy for minor party unity and its
role within the Freedoms NZ Coalition during the 2023
General Election, celebrates this merger as a strategic
enhancement of its operational strength and
outreach.

Chairperson of Rock The Vote NZ, Michael
Avenell says “This merger has brought together two groups
with shared values and goals, which makes for a very
motivated team with a spread of skills and
dynamics.”

Michael also says “Anyone who knows
John, knows that he is absolute gold and is an incredible
asset to our Party. We feel very excited about moving
forward together.”

Rock The Vote NZ formed in 2022
when it stood four candidates in Auckland in the 2022 Local
Body Elections, then went on to form a national political
party, standing four electoral candidates in the 2023 NZ
General Election, with John Alcock standing for Rock The
Vote NZ in Pakuranga.

John Alcock is a member of the
political community with diverse experience, from his tenure
on the ACT Party Board to his independent candidacy for
Mayor of Auckland in 2022.

John says “it made sense
to our team to join forces with Rock The Vote NZ, to bring
together two independent voices in New Zealand’s political
landscape and amplify their impact on national and local
governance.”

Looking ahead, John will spearhead Rock
The Vote NZ’s National Politics Sub-Committee and continue
his active involvement with its Local Body Sub-Committee,
whose ongoing engagement with Auckland Council and various
local Boards underscores its commitment to influencing
pivotal regional issues.

Rock The Vote NZ is gearing
up to expand its representation in the 2025 Local Body
Elections, reflecting its bolstered capabilities and renewed
focus on effecting meaningful political
change.
