Factcheck: National claims to be the largest ever opposition but the major opposition party had a larger % of seats in '46, '57 & '81. https://t.co/JuOTH2GooV

Wayne Mapp says this is 1st time party with most votes lost. True under MMP but in 1978 and 1981 Labour won more votes but lost to National.
