Join nzherald.co.nz for our virtual town hall where we put the questions our readers, viewers and listeners want answered to the leaders of the nation's largest political parties.
The series was due to kick off tonight at 7pm with Prime Minister and leader of the New Zealand Labour Party, Jacinda Ardern, live in the studio.
But bad weather has stranded the PM in the South Island, so her appearance has been delayed. We're working on a fresh date for Ardern, along with National leader Judith Collins.
Streaming live on nzherald.co.nz and our social platforms, the series features video submissions from everyday New Zealanders and leaders within their fields from economics to business, health to social justice.

With the general election just weeks away, who has the leadership, vision, and passion to lead us through one of the most testing times in our nation's history?
From the Covid-19 health response to tackling the economic fallout. How will each party manage the border? Who will offer the best support for struggling businesses and the unemployed? What are their solutions to the housing crisis? Plans to tackle climate change, healthcare debt and child poverty? Education policies?
With nothing off the table, this is your chance to raise issues and have your questions answered directly.
Hosted by Focus Live's Will Trafford, this series aims to answer your most pressing questions in the lead up to this historic election.
You can submit your questions live during the programme on NZ Herald's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, or, if you have a specific question for any of the other party leaders send us a video via Facebook Messenger of yourself asking it. We'll put as many questions as we can to the leaders live on air.
