Today is the last day of campaigning in Mt Albert. Those hoping for a gory Labour Green battle to froth about must be feeling a bit let down:
Greens’ Julie Anne Genter and Labour’s Jacinda Ardern strike up friendship in Mt Albert
The least bitter rivalry in New Zealand politics has broken out in the Mt Albert by-election, with the two leading candidates striking up a new friendship.
The Greens’ Julie Anne Genter and Labour’s Jacinda Ardern have been car-pooling to events together and handing out leaflets side by side.
At a debate hosted by the Spinoff website last week, the pair even showed off matching dance moves. …
Bloody infighting lefties eh! A pity that the Nats couldn’t make it to the party:
Final day of campaigning before Mt Albert votes and ‘it’s Jacinda’s election’
Labour leader Andrew Little will join Jacinda Ardern for the last day of campaigning ahead of Saturday’s Mt Albert byelection – with National-leaning voters split on the party’s no-show. …
All the best to all candidates, and thank you to Julie Anne Genter and Jacinda Ardern for showing us all such a model of cooperation.
