The New Zealand Seniors Party is an unregistered political party in New Zealand. The party is aimed at representing all - including older - New Zealanders, and was launched in June 2016. Chairman Paul Rea stated that the party formed from frustration with the Government's use of Section 70 of the Social Services Act 1964, which states that a New Zealand benefit or pension is reduced if there is an overseas pension. Specific areas of concern include the deduction of overseas pensions from New Zealand superannuation, euthanasia and medical marijuana. The party plans to register with the Electoral Commission and run candidates in the 2017 election.
