If I was made Prime Minister of New Zealand, the very first things on my agenda would include:

1. A complete open and transparent investigation in to the consultants and advisers processes and procedures. followed by the tendering processes.

2. A complete review of the Justice system and legislation on crimes and punishment.

3. A complete review of Parliamentary salaries, perks, expenditure and running costs funded by the taxpayer.

4. A complete review of the lobbying ability of big business and interest groups to parliament and ministers.

5. Introduction of a transparent and functional referendum system where voices can be heard.

6. A commission review of Kiwishare, New Zealand asset ownership and an investigation into governmental rights to dispose of assets without public consent.

7. A complete review of the police, defence forces, security, border patrol, customs and special forces to ensure the needs of the public are met in full.

8. A complete review of the taxation and health systems to ensure fairness and public benefit.

9. A review of the MMP system and proper fully informed public referendum.

10. A review of currently nationalised and privatised industries.

This would be where I would start anyway.
