says, "Back in 2015 we criticised the Police for buying a
ridiculous branded tractor (pictured). The gimmick was

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.
