1 Title

This order is the New Zealand Superannuation (Political Commitment) Order 2018.

2 Commencement

This order comes into force on 22 March 2018.

3 Schedule 4 of New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income Act 2001 amended

In the New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income Act 2001, Schedule 4, Parts 1 and 2, omit the items relating to United Future New Zealand.

Michael Webster,
Clerk of the Executive Council.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 22 March 2018, amends Schedule 4 of the New Zealand Superannuation and Retirement Income Act 2001.

Schedule 4 lists the political parties represented in Parliament who agree to Part 1 of the Act (which relates to entitlements to New Zealand superannuation) or to Part 2 of the Act (which relates to the New Zealand Superannuation Fund).

The effect of this order is to omit United Future New Zealand because that party is no longer represented in Parliament. Section 72(3) of the Act requires the Minister of Finance to make a recommendation to the Governor-General for an Order in Council to omit the name of a political party in those circumstances.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 22 February 2018.

This order is administered by the Treasury.
