NZ National Party leads in election results despite promising Labour campaign

New Zealanders may have to wait days or weeks to find out who their next Prime Minister will be as neither party managed to secure a majority in Saturday’s general election. The National Party, lead by incumbent Bill English, received the most votes but it was not enough to form a government.

After a promising campaign for Labour, with Jacinda Arden taking over as leader just 7 weeks ago, it appears that New Zealanders have instead opted for the status quo, though neither party has conceded defeat just yet.
