The history of Christian political parties

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:26 pm on 23 May 2019

National MP Alfred Ngaro is considering setting up a Christian Party which could potentially act as a support party for National at the next election. The concept of a Christian Party is not new. Christian influence in NZ politics dates back to the beginnings of representative government in the 1850s.  

Historian Grant Morris takes us for a walk through the world of minority religious parties.
