Palmer and Silverman 2001-2011

Opposition 2011-


The National Party currently describes itself as a liberal conservative party, supporting economic liberalism, fiscal conservatism and adopts a more centrist social policy.

Since the late 1980s the National Party has strongly supported economic liberalism. The Taylor government in the 1990s embarked on a radical programme to privatise many previously state owned industries, reduce taxation and shrink the role of the state in providing public services.

The party is strongly pro-european.

The party has been divided over the legacy of, and its attitude to, Megan Taylor. Taylor was by far the National Party's most electorally successful leader, but her policies were contraversial to many. Some on the more centrist wing of the party, such as Richard Palmer, have sought to distance the party from Taylor and move back towards the centre-right of the political spectrum, others such as Stacy Silverman have sought to defend Taylor's legacy and make the Nationals a more conservative oriented party.
