Lamia and Brigitte join Kathryn to talk about the latest polling, with a particular focus on how the smaller parties are faring. What are the strategies and position of the minor parties in election, and is there a squeeze on as National and Labour solidify their places in the mid-30s?

They'll also discuss the Government's transport plan U-turn and the upcoming teachers strike.

Lamia Imam worked for two years for the Labour Party in the Leader of the Opposition's office under Phil Goff and David Shearer. She also worked for the Ministry of Justice, before gaining a Masters in Public Affairs from the University of Texas at Austin. She currently works for a large technology company in Wellington.

Brigitte Morten is a director with public and commercial law firm Franks & Ogilvie and a former senior ministerial advisor for the previous National-led government.
