Ten votes | The Jackal

9 Dec 2011

Ten votes

Today, the NZ Herald reported:

Cabinet minister Paula Bennett is on the verge of losing her Waitakere electorate seat. 
Sources report that Labour's Carmel Sepuloni is ahead by fewer than 10 votes after the counting of special votes.

I really do hope this is true. Carmel Sepuloni is a great MP and what many consider one of Labours new faces. She stands for equality and a fairer system and deserves to win.
