Dotcom talks up plans for political party

Internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom is talking up his plans for a new political party ahead of its launch.

Dotcom, who was born Kim Schmitz in Germany, tweeted today that his party will activate non-voters, the youth and the internet electorate.

The businessman, who is fighting extradition to the US on internet piracy charges, revealed plans for a political party last September.

The general election will be held this year.
