NZ election results

The National Party’s Waitaki Electorate is partying in Oamaru.

National’s Jacqui Dean is the only candidate who was seeking both ticks but we’ll wait for some of the indicator booths to be counted before we get too excited.

    All I can say is good luck in the Waitaki.
    Ravi is up against it in the rotten borough of Mt Albert.
    Hopefully the National Party will reward him next time with a high positon on the list so he gets into parliament and can give us the benefit of his undoubted talent.

    Hope the language doesn’t upset your Southern Presbyterian sensitivities Ele, but I am absolutely bloody stoked! This is a great result, and if Key can include the Maori Party as well, he will have sown the seeds of a stable, long-term government.
