Party Support

  • Green 10.0% (-1.5%)
  • NZ First 4.5% (nc)
  • Maori 2.5% (nc)

  • Green 13
  • NZ First 0
  • Maori 4
  • United Future 1
  • ACT 5
  • Progressive 1
  • Total 122

This is based on Maori Party winning six electorate seats and ACT, United Future and Progressive one each.

Coalition Options

  • National 54 + ACT 5 + United Future 1 + Maori 4 = 64/122 – majority possible
  • Labour 44 + Progressive 1 + Greens 13 + Maori 4 = 62/122 = majority possible

The easiest option for both National and Labour to get a majority of at least 62 is shown. It is assumed ACT and United would only go with National and Progressive and NZ First only go with Labour.

  • Wrong 35.0% (+0.5%)
