Don’t expect an early election next year. Prime Minister John Key hinted yesterday that polling day would be before November but said “one or two” big events could affect the timing. He was coy about the details. He said he would reveal potential post-election coalition partners early in the new year, followed later by the election date. “Not six weeks before it but not necessarily 10 months or so before it.”
I like the way the PM announced the election date so early last time, rather than keep it as a state secret until the last minute in an attempt to gain tactical advantage.
I suspect more interest may be on what he says around potential coalition partners.Tags: Election 2014
