Greens' Chlöe Swarbrick 'stoked' to take Auckland Central in shock win

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, The Green Party's Chloe Swarbrick is the new MP for the Auckland Central electorate. The 26-year-old beat Labour's Helen White by fewer than 1000 candidate votes after consistently polling third. Auckland Central was the only electorate won by the Greens, but the party will get a further nine MPs on the list after taking out 7.6 per cent of the party vote.

Auckland Council and a range of national organisations have renewed calls to ban the private use and sale of fireworks after a parliamentary select committee decided in August to leave regulations unchanged.

Some people will be celebrating Guy Fawkes Day, held to commemorate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605.
