Muriel and Frank Newman

The 5PM movement has been founded by Muriel and Frank Newman.MN_avatar

They have some 15 years of front-line political experience between them – Muriel as a Member of Parliament, and Frank in local government.

This experience has given them an invaluable insight into politics at all levels.

Frank-Newman_avatarFor the last eight years they have kept their fingers on the pulse of politics as directors of the public policy think tank, the New Zealand Centre for Political Research.

They believe that informed citizens are at the heart of a well-functioning democracy and are actively campaigning for better government through
the NZCPR and the Five Principles Movement.
