The Dominion

MINORITY RULE: The incoming centre-left government lacks the numbers for a majority after the Greens snatched another seat on the specials last night. Labour and the Alliance have 59 seats and the Greens have seven.

VOTES: The Electoral Office has admitted 37 votes have vanished – this time in Mangare.

BEACH: The Plimmer Family Trust have given around three million dollars to Wellington to build a new white sand beach on Oriental Parade.

ISLANDS: Tough economic sanctions are reportedly being prepared against Niue and Nauru because of massive money laundering.

DOLLARS: Helen Clark has moved quickly to state that Michael Cullen rather than Jim Anderton will have his hands on the economic tiller of the country.
