The newly-formed NZ Rural Party will hold its first public meeting at the Okaihau Community Hall in Northland on November 24.

The meeting will establish an executive, approve the draft constitution and discuss the party's name.

The party was founded by Horeke farmer, forester and Northland regional councillor Joe Carr and Okaihau farmer, contractor and former Far North Holdings director Ken Rintoul, who claim political parties that had traditionally had provincial New Zealand's interests at heart were now focused on the major urban centres.
