Christchurch City Elections 2013: Preliminary results are in

Elections 2013: Preliminary results are in

Preliminary results of the Christchurch 2013 local body elections are now in, showing a more accurate picture of how many votes were received.

Results indicate the newly-elected Council will see Christchurch Mayor Elect Lianne Dalziel joined by 13 Councillors – nine of them new to the table, and four re-elected – as they govern Christchurch through the next three years.

While there are no changes to the highest-polling candidates indicated in the progress results earlier today, there is now a five-vote margin between the two highest-polling candidates for Councillor in the Banks Peninsula ward – Andrew Turner (1011 votes) and Nuk Korako (1006 votes).

It’s estimated that by the time all votes are counted, 42.55 per cent of eligible voters will have had their say, compared to 52.15 per cent in 2010, 42.02 per cent in 2007 and 38.77 per cent in 2004.

The highest-polling candidates are:

Mayor of Christchurch
Lianne Dalziel (72,046 votes)

Banks Peninsula Ward Councillor
Andrew Turner (1011 votes)

Burwood–Pegasus Ward Councillors
David East (7429 votes)
Glenn Livingstone (6813 votes)

Fendalton–Waimairi Ward Councillors
Jamie Gough (8654 votes)
Raf Manji (6447 votes)

Hagley–Ferrymead Ward Councillors
Yani Johanson (7325 votes)
Paul Lonsdale (4621 votes)

Riccarton–Wigram Ward Councillors
Vicki Buck (11,151 votes)
Jimmy Chen (6904 votes)

Shirley–Papanui Ward Councillors
Ali Jones (8929 votes)
Pauline Cotter (6185 votes)

Spreydon–Heathcote Ward Councillors
Phil Clearwater (7565 votes)
Tim Scandrett (5771 votes)

Voting closed at noon today (Saturday 12 October). This result is based upon all returned ordinary voting papers, not including special votes. Special votes will be counted from Monday 14 October.

The full preliminary results, including Community Board members, can be viewed at www.ccc.govt.nz/elections.

With a number of special votes still to process, it is hoped that final declaration of results will take place on Thursday 17 October.

Gordon Campbell:
On War Crimes And The Afghan Insurgency

Truly, with friends like former defence Minster Wayne Mapp, the SAS does not need enemies. At the very least, the Hit and Run book has raised the possibility that the New Zealand SAS committed war crimes in the attack they led in Afghnistan upon the villages of Naik and Khak Khuday Dad...

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
