Poll Shows National Winning In Tauranga

Media Statement By
Tony Ryall
MP Bay Of Plenty

30 June, 1999

National is predicting wins in all three coastal Bay of Plenty electorates following the release of a pre-election poll by Tauranga Boys' High School, according to Bay of Plenty MP Tony Ryall.

"The Tauranga Boys' High pre-election poll has never been wrong. This year the poll predicts a National-led government and a win for Katherine O'Regan as electorate MP.

"National does expect to regain the Tauranga electorate. Tauranga is a city on the move, and has left Winston Peters behind. Katherine O'Regan has worked hard locally for the past four years, and local people like that.

"National will hold Bay of Plenty and Coromandel. Recent boundary changes have assisted both electorates. Things are picking up in the Bay of Plenty region as the Asian crisis fades. Confidence is also improving," said Mr Ryall.

Results of the poll summarised below:

Electorate Vote: Tauranga:

National: 34.1%
NZ First: 21.9%
Greens 17.1%
Labour: 14.6%
Act: 7.3%
Alliance: 4.9%

Party Vote:

National: 37.7%
Labour: 29.3%
Alliance: 12.2%
Act: 7.3%
NZ First: 2.4%
Other: 11.1%
