Apathy was the winner

November 30, 2013

Apathy was the winner in the Christchurch east by-election.

Voter turnout  is estimated to be 41.4% of the 33,555 people enrolled.

Given Labour has always held the seat theirs no surprise in its candidate Poto Williams keeping it for the party.

Preliminary results are:

BAKER, Leighton Conservative Party   487
DOOCEY, Matthew National Party    3,506
GASKIN, Ian Independent   19
HOLLAND, Adam Independent   31
LAMBERT, Paula Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party  56
LICHTWARK, Jenner Democrats for Social Credit  20
MOORHOUSE, David Green Party  926
PARK, Sam Independent   75
VEALE, Gareth ACT New Zealand   56
WILLIAMS, Poto Labour Party 8,119
Candidate Informals  23
TOTAL  13,318

10 candidates for Chch east by-election

November 5, 2013

The Electoral commission has released the names of the 10 candidates for the Christchurch East by-election:

Candidate Name Party
BAKER, Leighton Conservative Party
DOOCEY, Matthew National Party
GASKIN, Ian Independent
HOLLAND, Adam Independent
LAMBERT, Paula Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party
LICHTWARK, Jenner Democrats for Social Credit
MOORHOUSE, David Green Party
PARK, Sam Independent
VEALE, Gareth ACT Party
WILLIAMS, Poto Labour Party

Keeping Stock has found Labour has been a mite premature about the outcome:

This is a red seat and the odds favour Williams but it is good manners to wait until the voters cast their ballots before claiming to be an MP.

#gigatownoamaru is taking nothing for granted in the race to become the Southern Hemisphere’s fastest town.
