By Dan Satherley: Kim Dotcom made the announcement on Twitter this morning.
Kim Dotcom has revealed the name of his planned new political vehicle: the Internet Party.
The entrepreneur and alleged copyright pirate made the announcement on his Twitter account this morning, at the same time revealing the party's simple purple and white logo.
"My new political party won't be named Mega Party," he wrote, referring to his cloud storage service Mega.
"We are the Internet Party. Here's our logo for the first time."
Dotcom is not a New Zealand citizen, so will not be able to stand for election. It's believed he will instead take the role of leader or president.
The Internet Party will be officially launched on January 20, the second anniversary of the raid on his rented Coatesville mansion.
The launch will be followed by a free party at Vector Arena, which will also celebrate his 40th birthday and the launch of his album Good Times.
