Election Human Rights Priorities: More Accountable Spy Agencies


(1) Ensure that the GCSB is not authorised to spy on New Zealand citizens and permanent residents

(2) Implement a comprehensive, high-level, independent inquiry into the role, functions, powers, internal compliance procedures and effectiveness of external oversight mechanisms of all NZ intelligence agencies, in particular the GCSB and NZSIS




Green Party: Support fully. We have repeatedly called for a review of our spy agencies and the powers they have and how

these powers are used.

Internet MANA:

Yes, and yes. Internet MANA will repeal the law that enables the GCSB to undertake mass surveillance and will review the respective roles played by the GCSB and other surveillance bodies as well as strengthening independent oversight.

No responses from other parties to date
