Changing views on next NZ Head of State

I’ve blogged at Curia the latest results in polling we did for NZ Republic on NZers preferences on who should be the next Head of State, when the Queen dies.

We’ve been asking the same question for four years now, and the results are summarised below:

Next British Monarch NZer elected by Parliament NZer elected by popular vote
2013 52% 9% 31%
2014 46% 11% 33%
2015 46% 11% 36%
2016 34% 15% 44%


It is the first time that the most popular choice has been a New Zealander elected by popular vote.
