Conservative Party leader Colin Craig told RNZ the core issue was whether Mr Key could be trusted.
"I have to say, I have doubts."
Mr Craig believed on balance there was mass surveillance of New Zealanders.
"I think John Key's been, shall we say, vague at best around the truth.
"And I think that matters, because we want to know that we can trust our leaders, trust our politicians and most importantly that our prime minister is at least either going to tell us the truth, or if he can't tell it because it's far too secure, maybe he can say, 'Guys, I can't tell you the answer to that'."
Colin Craig is either showing he cannot be trusted or is totally oblivious to the danger DotCom has exposed NZ to.
