Te Pāti Māori look to pick up more seats with special votes

From Midday Report, 12:42 pm on 3 November 2023

Politicians around the motu are waiting with bated breath as the results of the special votes are about to come in. 

The official numbers will be released at 2pm - which could see a number of electorate seats change, and will provide the information the National Party need to negotiate its way to the ninth floor of Parliament. 

Te Pāti Māori had a record performance at the election but will be hoping to swing a couple more people across the line - especially in the Tāmaki Makaurau and Te Tai Tokerau seats. 

Te Pāti Māori co-leader Debbie Ngarewa Packer spoke to Charlotte Cook.
