2017 Kiwiblog Awards winners

Over 1,500 people have voted in the 2017 Kiwiblog Awards. The winners are:

  • National MP of the year – Bill English beats Chris Bishop with 69% to 31%.
  • Labour MP of the Year – Jacinda Ardern beats Andrew Little by 58% to 42%
  • Minor Party MP of the Year – Winston Peters gets a majority of 55% followed by 29% for Julie-Anne Genter and 16% for Metiria Turei
  • MP of the Year is picked up by Bill English on 58%, then Jacinda Ardern 27%, Winston Peters 12% and Andrew Little 3%.

The MP of the Year results may reflect the readership of Kiwiblog (but I note Russel Norman won in 2012) but I think it also reflects that Bill English ran a great campaign and it is hard to see what he could have done differently to remain in Government (short of making Winston Prime Minister).
