Any update on that $158,000 Mr Peters?
Well done Mr Peters for prompt payment. Any update on that
27 AUGUST 2017
Responding to tonight's
news of the NZ Superannuation overpayments to Winston
Peters, Jordan Williams, Executive Director of the
Taxpayers’ Union, said:
"Well done to Winston Peters for
his prompt repayment of the Superannuation amounts. But
while we’re on the subject of repaying public funds –
that $158,000 of taxpayers’ money NZ First illegally spent
in the 2005 election, can we have that paid back

Election Day Results
2017 General Election - Preliminary Count
National won 46% of the vote with Labour on 35.8%.
NZ First won 7.5%, with the Greens on 5.8%.
ACT held on to Epsom, but failed to get more MPs.
The Maori Party were wiped out of Parliament.
There are still special votes to be counted, but clearly National is in the box seat to form the next Government.
The Greens can not contemplate a deal with National.
So, Winston Peters will have to make a choice and could back National or a combined Labour/Green coalition.
The most likely result is National and NZ First will reach some sort of deal to form the next government.
