Weekend Elections

flag_nz New Zealand: “New Zealand’s ruling National Party has won the most votes in the country’s general election but not by enough to form a government without forming a coalition. That means New Zealanders may need to wait for days or weeks before knowing who their next leader will be as the different political parties try to negotiate with each other to secure a majority. With nearly all votes counted, the Electoral Commission reported:

  • The National Party was leading with 46%
  • Labour was 35.8%, according to the Electoral Commission
  • The New Zealand First Party had about 7.5% cent of the vote so far, tipping it as a likely kingmaker.ABC

flag_germany Germany: First exit poll results (ZDF) – a disappointing outcome for Merkel’s coalition, mainly because of her migration policy:

The outcome is expected to be a Jamaica coalition: a coalition among the parties of the Christian Democratic Union/Christian Social Union (CDU/CSU) DW Article, Free Democratic Party (FDP) DW Article, and the Green Party DW Article rather than a Grand Coalition.

Update: Deutsche-Welle
