Labour, National on last-minute push for votes

From Midday Report, 12:20 pm on 13 October 2023

It's the final day of election campaigning before polls open at 9 on Saturday morning.

The leaders of all the political parties are out and about across the motu on Friday, frantically trying to meet as many voters as they can before the end of the day.

The latest polls put National in the driver seat - but with New Zealand First as an essential passenger, but Labour has seen a rise in their numbers in this final week.

Charlotte Cook spoke with two RNZ political reporters on the campaign trail - Giles Dexter, who was with Labour leader Chris Hipkins in Papatoetoe, and also Anneke Smith, who was with National leader Christopher Luxon.
