The National party wins NZ general election

Image courtesy of the 'Electoral Commission' Surprisingly the National party has won the general election more convincingly than last time 'round to begin their third term in Parliament.

Final results (top 4 parties):
National 48.1%
Labour 24.7%
Green 10.0%
NZ First 8.9%

They still might change slightly when the special/overseas votes are counted (last time the Greens gained a seat).

Quite an surprising result when a majority of the country claimed to want to stop things like asset sales that National have been championing as well as all the accusations of dirty politics that have been levelled against them.
