Waka jumping poll

One News reports:

Simon Bridges has backing from the public to remove MP from Parliament using the new law, according to the latest 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton poll. 

Mr Ross was expelled from the National Party after going rogue, but will be back in Parliament next year as an independent MP for Botany. 

However, the new waka jumping law means Mr Ross could be forced out, sparking a by-election. Under the law, if a MP decided to leave their political party, or was forced out by the leader, they now also lose their seat. 

“National won’t use it while [Mr Ross] is unwell,” Mr Bridges said.

“Further than that we haven’t decided.”

In the latest 1 NEWS Colmar Brunton Poll, 44 per cent of those asked said Mr Bridges should remove Mr Ross from Parliament using the new law. 

Twenty-four per cent disagreed,, and 31 per cent did not know. 

So around two to one in favour, of those decided.

What would be even more interesting is a poll of Botany residents asking them if they would like the law to be used so they get a by-election.
