McCully extends condolences to US

Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully today extended New Zealand’s condolences to the American people and the US Government over the loss of life at their diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.

“We are shocked and saddened by this attack on the US post, and by the death of the US Ambassador to Libya and three other US personnel,” Mr McCully says.

“New Zealand strongly condemns these acts of violence and sends our thoughts to the families, colleagues and friends of those killed.

“As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has noted, this was an attack by a small and savage group and not by the people or Government of Libya.

“New Zealand is committed to working with its friends and partners, including the United States, in pursuit of a more stable and democratic Libya,” Mr McCully says.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
