Counting continues, and NZ is infamous for taking forever to count. Final results, in fact, will not be in for nearly a month! Unlike political parties in Canada, of the UK elections agency, any postal ballots only need to be sent by, not received by, the date of the election.
As such, my post that explains the results in greater detail will be a few days away.
However, the results we have are somewhat clear.
At current, expected seats are as follows:
58 - National
45 - Labour
9 - NZ First
7 - Green
1 - ACT
0 - Maori
National has clearly won the election, but the coalitions are not yet formed and Labour could still find a way in to government.
Chances are, however, that Winston Peters of NZ First will choose to go with National; but will leverage the possibility of going with Labour to get the best deal possible.
