Auckland Council election progress results

Progress results for the Auckland Council elections show incumbent Mayor Len Brown has been re-elected for a second term and is currently 50,014 votes ahead of his nearest rival John Palino.

On the basis of the progress results, incumbent councillors Richard Northey (Maungakiekie-Tamaki) and Ann Hartley (North Shore) have lost their seats. The new councillors-elect are Denise Krum for Maungakiekie-Tamaki and Chris Darby on the North Shore.

In the Whau ward, incumbent councillor Noelene Raffills is 89 votes ahead of Ross Clow. The final result could be affected by the special votes still to be counted.

Other new faces replacing retiring councillors are: Linda Cooper (Waitakere) who replaces Sandra Coney; John Watson (Albany) who replaces Michael Goudie; and Bill Cashmore (Franklin), who replaces Des Morrison.

By this morning 34.3% of eligible voters had cast their votes.

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance

Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.

Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties. Despite Finlayson’s misleading signals on RNZ that these are only stopgaps until next year’s full review of our security laws, the measures in question will not, in fact, expire until 2018.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
