NZ Election 2020: ACT's David Seymour on holding politicians to account

By Charlotte Cook of RNZ

The Elevator Pitch is a five-part RNZ series where leaders of the main parties pitch why someone should vote for them in the time it takes to ride the elevator.

In Thursday's Elevator Pitch, ACT leader David Seymour says he doesn't support splashing the cash, and crushes on a Scooby Snack-loving cartoon.

Seymour pitches to Charlotte Cook why his party should get people's vote.

He said ACT is a party for the self-starters and the independent thinkers.

"If you wanna see a group of thoughtful, independent minded MPs sitting in Parliament holding everyone accountable, that's a reason you might give your party vote to ACT."

Seymour said the party is principled and gets things done when it really counts.

ACT is focused on reducing debt for future generations, he said.

"We are not going to support splashing the cash in every conceivable direction."

Seymour also reveals his cartoon crush "Ruh-roh--RAGGY" and meets a pal in the lift.

In previous episodes, National Party leader Judith Collins has tried to pinch a member from another party, and NZ First leader Winston Peters and Green Party leader James Shaw found themselves in a different kind of competition.
