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.

Urgent Bill Planned:
MP Pay Rises To Match Public Service

Prime Minister John Key today announced an overhaul of the Remuneration Authority Act, tying MP salaries to those of the wider public sector, which will be passed under urgency.

The new legislation will be backdated to 1 July 2014, meaning the pay increase outlined in the latest determination will not be awarded. More>>
