New Zealand farmers set for right-wing protest vote over climate change policies

  • A shift in New Zealand's environmental policies to tackle climate change and reduce carbon emissions has fueled rural voter anger, potentially leading to a return of right-wing parties to power in the upcoming election.
  • Farmers in New Zealand are protesting against the Labour Party's environmental policies, such as planting pine forests on grazing land and taxing livestock methane burps, which they believe threaten their livelihoods. They are looking to conservative candidates who will undo or delay these policies.
  • The National Party, the leading opposition party, is expected to need the support of at least one minor party, possibly the ACT party, to govern. New Zealand may also become the first country to tax farmers for methane from animals starting from 2025.
