Ranginiu (February 2011 - May 2014) was a centre-left political party formerly active in New Zealand. The party was originally formed as the political wing of the Slovenian militia the Angry Angels. It had a robust history and had consistent representation in the NZ Parliament from its founding to around late 2014.

The party had a vibrant history of being politically engaged in NZ but by mid-2014 it had suffered defections as a number of leading members left NZ, the Slovenian members returned to their home region and the party simply wilted away to nothing. It was dissolved in 2014 when Moon King arrived and launched a new party.

Angry Angels

Ranginui was the first political parties in NZ to officially become the political-wing of a military unit. During much of NZ's early history, parties avoided affiliation with MU's and instead sought to integrate all fighters in the New Zealand Defense Forces. Ranginui sought to end this when it's members left the NZDF and affiliated all joined the Slovenian Angry Angels.

During much of its history, MU members ran for Congress under only the Ranginui banner and most members who joined the party typically sought entrance into the MU. By ensuring it had a political voice in NZ, the Angels also ensured their interests were protected and represented within the government.

This relationship has continued with time, as most members joined the MU and fought with it in countless engagements around the New World. However, occasional members have joined other MU's, notably the NZDF. Because most Angry Angels members eventually left NZ, the remaining members are now split between various MU's around the world.
