It's election year here in New Zealand, and we're about 2 months out from voting day.
The election year build up as been in the media for a few months now, but parties appear to be holding on to their election year policies, and drip feeding them to the public?
Why do they hold on to their election policies for so long, rather than have them out in the open and become more common knowledge and discussion?
I.e. There is a lot of discussion about the parties in the 6 months leading up to the election, but most of this is without the parties having even released policies.
