I’ve done a quick analysis of how many votes each party needed to get an MP. In descending order they are:
NZ First 17,048
Could almost call it a Maori Party gerrymander as the overhang means their votes count almost twice as much as the other parties.
Now you could claim that is far enough won the electorate vote in four electorates. Well yes they did, but the number of votes cast in each Maori seat is only 16,000 – less than half the average in general seats.No tag for this post.
