NZ election 2020: Jacinda Ardern thanks New Zealand amid Labour landslide – live results | World news
The Māori Party has gained the lead in one of the seven Māori electorates.
Rawiri Waititi has narrowly taken the lead from Labour in the central North Island electorate of Waiariki.
The Maori Party lead in Waiariki is currently 299.
This may be the only electorate race which will make a difference to the national seat count. If the Māori Party win, they will have win one seat that they wouldn’t otherwise have won, and be eligible for list seats.
At the moment they have only polled around 1% of the national party vote, which isn’t enough to win a second seat on the list, but it is theoretically possible they could pick up a second if their vote picks up. Still that would be one less seat available for the other four parties.
