As has become a tradition Scoop.co.nz is again holding its election Sweepstake.

You the reader get to pick the numbers of seats for each party and whoever gets the closest answer will win something nice.

***Scoop Election Sweepstake – Scoop's Editorial Team Picks***

For the avoidance of doubt the Scoop reader winner will be determined on the basis of the election night figures. The judges have determined that to wait for electoral petitions, special votes and recounts would be a touch tedious.

At this stage the something nice consists of a book & a slap up meal voucher, plus the ego boost that comes from knowing you are better than anyone else at reading the mood of the nation. (We will let the winner decide whether Scoop gets to tell the nation how clever they are after the winner is announced.)

The format for answers is provided in an example below. Please either send to editor@scoop.co.nz with "Sweepstake" In the subject line. Or if you prefer send it to us via the SCOOP FEEDBACK FORM [http://www.scoop.co.nz/about/feedback.html]

SAMPLE SWEEPSTAKE ENTRY

Labour 47
National 44
NZ First 10
Greens 9
Maori 4
ACT 3
United 2
Progressive 2

TOTAL 121 (1 seat overhang)

PLEASE NOTE: YOU NEED TO TELL US SEAT NUMBERS... NOT PERCENTAGES OF THE VOTE & it will pay to double check your addition. For those who don't already know there are 120 seats in Parliament barring an overhang caused by a party getting more seats than it does Party Vote. If you want to include extra predictions like who will win which seats then feel free to do so and the judges will take those into account in the event we have more than one winning entry.

Ian Powell: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?

On 19 June the Sunday Star Times published my column on the relationship between the Labour government’s stewardship of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system and the outcome of the next general election expected to be around September-October 2023: Is the health system an electoral sword of Damocles for Labour...

The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>
