Labour Thrilled by Tamaki Turnabout


New Zealand Labour Party

Media Release for immediate release 31 July 2002 11.45am

Labour Thrilled by Tamaki Turnabout

Saturday's election result saw Labour winning the party vote in Tamaki and Clem Simich's majority slashed to just under 1200 votes. This result shows that Labour can win in Tamaki and that this electorate cannot be seen as a safe blue ribbon seat by National according to Mike Moore, Labour Electorate Chair.

"We are thrilled by this result. The party vote result shows that Labour has the right message for Tamaki. We could tell by talking to people throughout the electorate that we had a good chance of winning and we did where it counts, the party vote. Our result has built on the good result achieved by Labour in Tamaki in 1999".

"We expect this trend to accelerate as we focus over the next 3 years in further building our organisational strength in Tamaki. People from throughout the electorate - Panmure to Kohimarama were involved in our campaign. As the Labour Electorate Chair my focus will be in keeping people involved and keeping our profile up. We welcome suggestions from new members and supporters about what they would like to see Labour in Tamaki doing over the next 3 years".

"I thank all those who worked hard for our superb result especially our candidate Leila Boyle and our campaign team. It has been a real pleasure campaigning in Tamaki hearing the support for our government and our Prime Minister".

For further comment contact Mike Moore on 027-233-0100 or 528-0330 (h).

2018 was a difficult year for the Indonesian archipelago. This chain of fragile and largely low-lying islands is situated on a particularly unstable segment of the Pacific rim of fire. Last year the islands were hit by a series of devastating natural events including a series of Lombok, Sulawesi and Java based earthquakes and resultant tsunamis.More>>
