Kia ora and Asalam-o-Alaikum,

My name is Ali Muhammad, and I am proud to be a candidate for the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand. The challenges and struggles of displacement and resettlement give me a unique perspective on politics.

Growing up, I witnessed the devastating effects of war and conflict on my community, which forced my family to flee our home and seek refuge in New Zealand. This experience has instilled a deep appreciation for the value of social justice, equity, and compassion in creating a fairer society.

My experiences have also fuelled my passion for environmental issues, as I have seen first-hand how climate change and environmental degradation can exacerbate existing social and economic inequalities. As a Green Party candidate, I am committed to promoting policies prioritising the well-being of people and the planet.

I believe everyone should have access to affordable housing, quality education, and healthcare. We must take urgent action to address the climate crisis and protect our planet for future generations.

I am excited to bring my unique perspective and experiences to the Greens Party and to work with my fellow members to create a more equitable future for all New Zealanders.
