    Christchurch's Mayor is supporting TOP's policy of lengthening local government terms to four years

    Christchurch's Mayor is supporting TOP's policy of lengthening local government terms to four years


    Opportunities Party governance policy announced today includes lowering the voting age to 16 - and shifting parliamentary and local terms to four years.

    It would also remove GST on rates.

    Phil Mauger says three-year terms are too short.

    He says you've only just got your head into it and then in the third year, you have to run again.
