    Looks like Collins' seat is close too.

    • Peter 2.1

      Paddy Gower was just getting all orgasmic about Waiariki and the Maori Party being back, the Maori movement being back. Fair enough, but if Rawiri Waititi is there by himself how big a thing is that past being symbolic?

      • froggleblocks 2.1.1

        It's huge.

        Also depending how specials go, a shot at getting a 2nd MP coat-tailed in, due to sizeable wasted vote.

  2. weka 3

  3. gsays 4

    Rangitikei, apart from the Bruce Beetham years in the '70's, has been National since 1938.

    15% of the vote counted and the Labour candidate Soraya Peke Mason leads…

    What a night!

    atm, all the SI electorates are red (not Southland).

    Waitaki though!

    • Graeme 5.1

      Southland's gone red on the party vote though (so far), and the electorate vote is a hell of a lot closer than it's ever been.

      I'm a bit surprised that it's that way round, sort of expected the electorate vote to be more red than the party with Jon Mitchell seeming the stronger candidate, Mooney comes across as a complete muppet. Jacinda effect, and the National party has become too toxic down here? But ACT have done well.

    Waiariki – Preliminary Count

    Electorate No. 72 – 175 of 300 results counted

    VOTES COUNTED: 16,044 58.3%

    LEADING CANDIDATE:COFFEY, Tamati Gerald 7,160
    2nd CANDIDATE:WAITITI, Rawiri 7,150


    Edit: it just flipped to WAITITI, Rawiri

    Green on now, Chloe is it. Sue Bradford opts for Greens to stay out of coalition and stay watching and questioning and pushing Labour with its huge majority to stay on task. The Greens campaign manager ?

    Now Jacinda comes in and has to wait for everyone to stop cheering.

    She gives a Maori greeting. Everyone cheers.

  7. arkie 8

    Chloe wins it!

    VOTES COUNTED: 26,509 100.0%

    2nd CANDIDATE: WHITE, Helen 8,568


  8. Cinny 9

    And dr custard loses his seat 🙂 Nelson turns red, life is good 🙂

    Patricia Bremner where ever you maybe, hope you enjoyed your bubbles heart I was thinking of you when I heard the news. Big cyber hugs to you and yours from me and mine xxx

  9. Incognito 10

    Notwithstanding the closest contender, he would get my vote.


  10. John Furey 11

    It's pretty close in Whangarei. Dr Reti will not be thinking of challenging for the National leadership he has a fight on his hands just trying to hold his seat. Labour had the best candidate ever in Emily Henderson

  11. John Furey 12

    It's pretty close in Whangarei. Dr Reti will not be thinking of challenging for the National leadership he has a fight on his hands just trying to hold his seat. Labour had the best candidate ever in Emily Henderson. Emily was behind by about 180 votes
