Better transparency

A lot of things the government does never really see the light of day. Communication around Covid has been good - and the country generally knows what's going on. Why can't it be like this for other important issues? I know that Covid is unprecedented - but there are a lot of govt decisions with wide impacts that are not properly communicated to the public. The onus shouldn't be on the public to go trawling doe information. The govt could make it easier and more accessible by investing more in informing the public of key decisions. 

Why the contribution is important

For greater transparency in the decisions that govt makes, which have significant impacts on most New Zealanders.

    I agree with the post by land007 on March 2nd.
    Legislative changes have been rushed through without any public consultation and unrealistic timeframes. It seems if you challenge this is not aligned to the present Govt's narrative and is dismissed. There seems to be an increasing trend of reactive management to things that should have public consultation and working groups for the other.
