Should the Govt ignore the asset sales petition?


The record number of pre-registrations for Mighty River Power shares shows there is strong appetite for well-structured businesses, says one fund manager.

Pre-registrations have hit 327,600.

Menawhile, supporters of the Keep Our Assets coalition have presented boxes of signatures gathered in petition it hopes will halt the Government's asset sales plan mid-stream.

The coalition, led by Labour, the Greens and Grey Power needs 308,000 valid signatures to trigger a referendum on the Government's partial asset sales plan which is now under way with the sale of Mighty River shares.

"Recycle the paper the petition is written on and use it send thanks but no thanks letters to those who signed it."


"Ignoring a petition is undemocratic and people in favor of ignoring it should move to a country where their voice doesn't matter."
