3 News Poll Reveals Winston Peters Could Be Kingmaker, Danger For John Key and the National Party

The first major political opinion poll of the year shows John Key and the National Party could lose this year’s general election - with Winston Peters as Kingmaker.

3 News Political Editor Patrick Gower says:   "These results suggest this will be one of the most closely fought elections in New Zealand history.  A realistic election night result could see Winston Peter hold the balance of power – and that's exactly why John Key hasn't ruled him out."

The 3 News/Reid Research poll of 1000 people was taken between January 23-29 and has a margin of error of 3.1%.

Greens: Oil Drilling Face-Off With Labour

The plan is the second component of the Party’s environmental priority this election: Rivers clean enough to swim in again, and beaches safe from oil spills.

The Green Party loves New Zealand and will create a cleaner environment where our beaches remain open for swimming, not closed for oil spills.

The key policy points in the Green Party’s plan to protect our beaches from oil spills are to:
1. Prohibit deep sea oil drilling;
2. Implement compulsory shipping lanes for coastal shipping;
3. Build Maritime New Zealand’s oil spill response capability; and
4. Introduce a stronger legal framework so that when accidents do happen, the New Zealand taxpayer does not have to pay for the clean-up. More>>
