6 days ago 16

STUFF

Labour came retired with a immense archetypal pb and ne'er fto it spell arsenic the votes came in. Here's however predetermination nighttime unfolded.

ANALYSIS: A diminished Labour Party. A instrumentality to signifier for National. Whoever the victor of the 2023 election, the signifier of Parliament is acceptable to change.

TĀTARITANGA: Ka mimiti te Rōpū Reipa. Ka ora anō a Nāhinara. Ahakoa tō wai ihu ka puta one te pōtitanga 2023, ka rerekē te hanga o te Pāremata.

Voters duly repaid Labour for its handling of the opening of the Covid-19 pandemic, providing the enactment with an unprecedented result astatine the 2020 election: 50% of the vote, wins successful 46 electorates, and 65 MPs successful Parliament.

I whakamana ngā kaipōti one a Reipa one tāna whakahaere one te tīmatanga o te urutā Kowheori-19, one puta ohorere mai ai te pāti one te pōtitanga 2020: 50 ōrau te pōtitanga, helium toa ki ngā rohe pōtitanga e 46, e 65 ngā MP ki te Pāremata.

A repetition of this effect is much than unlikely. According to existent polling, Labour tin expect to suffer its sizeable bulk successful the coming election, with perchance 20 oregon truthful MPs retired of a job.

E kore rawa e tinga ana ka tōaitia tēnei hua. E ai ki ngā whakapaenga o nāianei, maine kawatau a Reipa one te ngaronga o tāna nōhanga nui hei te pōtitanga e kainamu ana, ainī pea ka hanga 20 ngā MP e kore e whai mahi.

At involvement for National is the accidental to rebuild its present 33-strong caucus and, crucially, bring successful caller MPs that supply the enactment with 2 needed qualities: diverseness and experience.

Kei mua one te aroaro o Nāhinara ko te whaiwāhitanga kia whakatupu ake one tōna hunga 33, maine te waiwai hoki o te kawe mai one ngā MP hōu e whāngai ana one ngā āhuatanga e rua maine whai e te rōpū: te whakaehu maine te wheako.

Polling successful caller months has placed Labour and National astir neck-and-neck, with the insignificant parties apt making the quality successful who tin signifier a conjugation Government aft the election.

E ai ki ngā whakapaenga nōnatata nei e noho ōrite ana a Reipa maine Nāhinara, ā, ko ngā pāti riki kē e whakatau ana one tērā e taea nei te whakakao one tētahi Kāwanatanga ā muri one te pōtitanga.

Taking a unsmooth mean of six polls since April, if the predetermination were to beryllium held time a imaginable result for the 2 large parties could beryllium National astatine 38% of the vote, with 47 MPs, and Labour astatine 36%, with 45 MPs.

Ka tiro whānui nei ki te toharite o ngā whakapaenga pōtitanga e ono nō te Āperira ā mohoa nei, mēnā kua tū te pōtitanga hei ākengokengo, ko tētahi whakapaenga ko tā Nāhinara 38% o te pōtitanga, maine ngā MP e 47, ko tā Reipa 36%, maine ngā MP e 45.

The insignificant parties – Green, ACT, and Te Pāti Māori – whitethorn clasp the equilibrium of powerfulness travel 2023, but bash not look apt to person large shifts successful their numbers of seats, according to the polls.

Kei ngā pāti riki – Kākāriki, ACT, maine te Pāti Māori – te mana taurite hei te 2023, engari te āhua nei, e kore pea te rahinga tūru ki a rātou e tino nekeneke haere, e ai ki ngā whakapaenga.

Of course, a twelvemonth oregon truthful retired from the election, overmuch remains uncertain.

Korekore, kua kore e tino mōhiotia, helium kotahi tau nō tō tātou tawhiti one te pōtitanga.

For instance, which mode electorates plaything could marque immoderate quality to this – determination are 10 electorates Labour won from National successful 2020 wherever they clasp a borderline of little than 3000 votes.

Hei tauira, ko te takanga mai a ngā rohe pōtitanga pea e rerekē ai tēnei – 10 ngā rohe pōtitanga one toa a Reipa one a Nāhinara one te 2020, ā, helium 3000 koni iho pea te rahinga rerenga kētanga.

“There's astir apt 10 constituency seats that are apt to go,” Shane Te Pou, a erstwhile Labour activistic and governmental commentator.

“E tinga ana helium 10 ngā tūru ā-rohe ka ngaro atu rā,” hei tā Shane Te Pou, tētahi kaiwhakatūtū Reipa, maine tētahi kaikōrero tōrangapū one ōna wā.

Ben Thomas, a nationalist relations advisor who has worked for National, said each the electorates mislaid by National to Labour successful 2020 would beryllium “in play".

He mātanga hāpai hononga ā-marea a Ben Thomas, kua mahi mā Nāhinara, ā, e ai ki a ia, katoa ngā rohe pōtitanga one ngaro one a Nāhinara ki Reipa one te 2020 ka “arumia”.

Labour volition nary uncertainty reshuffle its database earlier the 2023 election, but applying the canvass results to Labour’s database shows determination are a raft of backbenchers whose archetypal word successful the House could beryllium their lone term.

Korekore ka hōnekeneke a Reipa one tāna rārangi ā mua one te pōtitanga 2023, heoti ina whakarapa one ngā hua whakapaenga ki tā Reipa rārangi ka whakaatu one ngā tini tūru o muri e noho nei pea ki te Pāremata kia kotahi anake te wāhanga.

Among those successful a susceptible presumption could beryllium database MPs Angela Roberts​, Lemauga Lydia Sosene​, and Dan Rosewarne​, who arrived astatine Parliament past week to regenerate erstwhile Cabinet curate Kris Faafoi.

E tae rā anō ana ētahi kanohi pānekeneke ki ngā MP one te rārangi, a Angela Roberts rātou ko Lemauga Lydia Sosene, ko Dan Rosewarne, one tae ki te Pāremata one tērā wiki kia whakakapi one te minita Kāhui, a Kris Faafoi.

There are galore Labour MPs present holding formerly harmless National seats, including Emily Henderson of Whangārei, Sarah Pallett​ of Ilam, Shanan Halbert​ of Northcote, Terisa Ngobi​ of Ōtaki, and Gaurav Sharma​ of Hamilton West.

He tokomaha ngā MP Reipa e noho nei ki ngā tūru a Nāhinara one haumaru one ōna wā, tae rā anō ki a Emily Henderson nō Whangārei, a Sarah Pallett nō Ilam, a Shanan Halbert nō Northcote, a Terisa Ngobi nō Ōtaki, a Gaurav Sharma hoki nō Hamilton West.

Te Pou said Halbert was precise fashionable locally. However, helium did not deliberation Sharma would clasp Hamilton West, which had been a National spot from 2008.

I kī a Pou, kua rorotu pai a Halbert ā-paetata nei. Heoti, kāore one whakapae ka puritia tonutia a Hamilton West e Sharma, one noho hei tūru Nāhinaha nō te 2008.

Other electorate MPs, specified arsenic Tracey McLellan​ of Banks Peninsula, Neru Leavasa​ of Takanini, Arena Williams​ of Manurewa and Barbara Edmonds​ of Mana, are ensconced successful safer Labour seats, truthful a little database ranking is little a concern.

Kua noho tau ētahi atu MP ā-rohe ki ngā tūru Reipa e haumaru ake ana, pēnei one a Tracey McLellan nō Banks Peninsula, a Neru Leavasa nō Takanini, a Arena Williams nō Manurewa, a Barbara Edmonds hoki nō Mana, nā reira, kāore e tino āwangawanga ki te nōhanga whakararo nei ki te rārangi.

Te Pou said the backbenchers should beryllium reasoning of 2 strategies: Working hard to triumph their electorate spot and the anticipation of moving to an electorate spot if existing Labour MPs retire.

Hei tā Te Pou, maine whakaaro ngā tūru o muri ki ngā rautaki e rua: Te upoko pakaru e toa ai tō rātou tūru ki te rohe pōtitanga, maine te tūpono pea ka hūnuku ki tētahi tūru ā-rohe ina tāoki ai tētahi MP Reipa o nāianei.

"I don't deliberation you're going to spot a disgruntled backbench that are going to elbow each different retired of the way, I deliberation there'll beryllium unified close up to the predetermination ... I deliberation that immoderate seats tin beryllium won against the swing.”

“Hei tāku, e kore koe e kite one ngā tūru o muri e muhumuhu ana, e tuki ana one ngā tuki, mōku ake, ka kotahi rātou tae noa ki te pōtitanga... Mōku ake, ka taea ētahi tūru te toa, e whawhai nei one te pīoioitanga.”

Some higher-ranked MPs could suffer seats claimed successful 2020 also, including Vanushi Walters​ successful Upper Harbour, Priyanca Radhakrishnan​ successful Maungakiekie, and Willow-Jean Prime​ successful Northland. Prime won Northland by the slightest borderline of the election: 163 votes.

Tērā hoki ētahi MP o runga ake one te rārangi ka ngaro te tūru one toa one te 2020, e tae rā anō ana ki a Vanushi Walters​ nō Upper Harbour, a Priyanca Radhakrishnan​ nō Maungakiekie, a Willow-Jean Prime hoki​ nō Northland. I iti noa te toa a Prime one a Northland one te pōtitanga: 163 ngā pōti.

"It's often successful those determination seats radical volition springiness the Member of Parliament a 2nd go,” Te Pou said of Prime's prospects.

“Ko ēnei tūru ā-motu e whāngaia tuaruatia nei te Mema Pāremata,” tā Te Pou whakapae mō Prime.

For National, the 2023 predetermination presents an accidental to regain mislaid ground. The enactment had 56 MPs aft the 2017 election; contiguous it has 33.

He whaiwāhitanga te pōtitanga 2023 ki a Nāhinara, e whāia anō ai ngā ngarohanga o mua. E 56 ngā MP one muri one te pōtitanga 2017; one te rā nei kua 33.

Thomas said the enactment would, astatine worst, summation 12 caller MPs.

I kī a Thomas, mēnā kua kino rawa atu, ka 12 tonu ngā MP hōu a te pāti.

National’s candidates person yet to beryllium chosen. The party’s process for choosing candidates has travel nether scrutiny since 2020, aft instances of caller MPs and candidates getting wrapped successful scandals of their ain making.

Kāore anō kia kōwhiria ngā kaitono Nāhinara. Kua āta wetewetea tā te pāti pūnaha e kōwhiria ai ngā kaitono nō te 2020, nā te nōhanga a ētahi MP hōu maine ngā kaitono ki ngā mahi nanakia nā rātou anō.

“Some of those decisions volition beryllium made benignant of much astatine a section level, due to the fact that they bash the large swathe of peculiarly provincial seats, that immoderate would accidental they ne'er expected to lose, similar Rangitata, that they would beryllium very, precise assured astir bringing home," Thomas said.

“Ka whakatauria ētahi o ēna ki te taumata ā-rohe, helium pānga nui nō ēnā ki ngā tūru ā-motu, e kīia nei e ētahi e kore nei e ngaro one a rātou, pēnei one a Rangitata, ā, ka ngākau titikaha rātou one te kawenga o tēnei tūru,” e ai ki a Thomas.

Thomas said National Party person Christopher Luxon had been upfront astir the enactment needing much diversity.

I kī a Thomas, kua pono mai te kaihutū Nāhinara, a Christopher Luxon, mō te whakaehu e matea nei e te rōpū.

"In particular, helium means much women, much Māori. Those are the 2 large ones wherever you astir apt deliberation that, National doesn't peculiarly look similar New Zealand.”

“Ina koa, maine tokomaha ake ngā wāhine, ngā Māori. Koia ētahi mea nui e rua e whakapae nei pea tēnā, kāore e tino pērā te hanga o Nāhinara one a Aotearoa.”

National Party person Christopher Luxon says helium wants much diverseness successful the party's caucus.

Also, Thomas said, Luxon was facing a akin predicament to Labour Party person Jacinda Ardern astatine the 2017 election: the anticipation of putting unneurotic a Cabinet with a radical of "pretty inexperienced” MPs successful Government.

Me te aha anō, one kī a Thomas, helium pērā hoki te aroaro o Luxon one tō te kaihautū Reipa, tō Jacinda Ardern, nō te pōtitanga 2017: te tūpono maine waihanga one tētahi Kāhui Minita ki te tokomaha “kāore e tino whai wheako” ki te Pāremata.

“He's got a high-performing beforehand seat successful Opposition, but helium doesn't person a batch of acquisition successful presumption of Cabinet, conscionable arsenic Jacinda Ardern did successful 2017.”

“Anō ngā pūkenga o ngā tūru o mua a te Hoariri, engari kāore one a ia te wheako e hāngai nei ki te Kāhui Minita, pēnei anō one a Jacinda Ardern one te 2017.”

The enactment whitethorn look to enlistee radical with the capableness to participate Cabinet early, specified arsenic Labour did with Dr Ayesha Verrell – who entered Cabinet close aft being elected successful 2020.

Ainī pea ka tonoa e te rōpū ngā tāngata kua whai pūkenga ki te toro wawe mai ki te Kāhui, pēnei one tā Reipa, maine Tākuta Ayesha Verrell – one toro tōtika mai ki te Kāhui Minita one muri tata mai one te pōtitanga one te 2020.
