- Peace = not attacking other countries (except in agreement for training purpose)
- Prosperity = setting economic parameters in a way that keeps the economy competitive on a global scale, (particularly by keeping import taxes low)
- Part of the Coalition = accepting the results of primary elections and following a common strategy to fight off PTOs
The political positions of the PnPP have evolved with time. Originally the party was founded as a centre-right, libertarian party but as an ideology has meant relatively little in NZ politics, this done mainly as the original founders were deemed to adhere to that ideology. Many of its early members were attracted by the centre-right label and it did adhere to this ideology during its early era.
However, after the 2nd Don KronoX government (the first PnPP led), the party evolved into a more centrist party and basically abandoned all forms of ideological support. It has generally since adopted a broad approach to ideology, mostly because of its size and the varied membership it has attracted with time. Eventually, in fall 2012, the party voted to change its official ideology to centrist, confirming the reorientation which had taken place since its creation.
