Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

NZ elections - happening now

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

For those who haven't been following NZ politics, like most people, the NZ National party has been in power for a long time and they were expected to win again this year. However, there is a new leader of the Labour opposition who is young and charismatic. A lot of NZers are hoping for change.

New Zealand election: NZ First's Winston Peters kingmaker in hung parliament – live updates
2.31pm 14:31
100% of results counted

100% of results have now been counted – bar specials, which include overseas votes and votes cast outside home electorates; those could take up to a fortnight to tally and might shift the landscape a little. But this is how the next parliament will, probably, look:

National 46.0%, 58 seats
Labour 35.8%, 45 seats
New Zealand First 7.5%, 9 seats
Green party 5.8%, 7 seats
ACT, 0.5%, 1 seat
The Opportunities party (TOP) 2.2%, 0 seats
Māori party 1.1%, 0 seats

No other parties scored above 1%. The threshold to secure a seat in parliament is 5% of the party vote or an electorate (constituency) win, which is how ACT finds its way in, with party leader David Seymour winning in Epsom.
