The ACT Leader, Jamie Whyte, says his is the only party campaigning to be tough on crime, and calling for a low flat tax rate.

Mr Whyte says ACT will also be campaigning for a cut to "green tape" , and is also promising to cut regulation particularly in local body politics.

He says party members also believe many New Zealanders are concerned about the divisive effect of race-based laws, and ACT will be campaigning for one law for all.

He says, for example, they oppose the Parliamentary system's Maori electorates and the special rights for iwi under the Resource Management Act.
