No Commercial Airport at Whenuapai Airbase Party
The No Commercial Airport at Whenuapai Airbase Party was a local political party in New Zealand which opposed the transformation of Auckland's Whenuapai airbase into a commercial airport. The party leader was Toby Hutton, a Browns Bay apprentice.
The party was inspired by the success of the Whenuapai Airbase Action Group (Waag) in turning the fate of the airbase into a political issue during the 2007 local body elections. However, it s not connected with any existing group. It plans to contest the East Coast Bays electorate during the 2008 election.
The party has applied to register a logo with the Electoral Commission on 21 April 2008. It has not yet applied for registration, and so cannot contest the party list.
It ran a single electorate candidate in 2008 and received 238 electorate votes. It did not run in the 2011 election.
