We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

There is a high chance that the deadly coronavirus will make it to New Zealand, health officials say, but that doesn't mean you should panic.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley BloomfieldBloomfield said cases in New Zealand of the new outbreak, which has killed 56 people and infected thousands overseas, were likely.

Hospitals ICU units were already stepping up in preparation for the possibility of severely ill people with the virus. This was because while the virus was unlikely to kill anyone in New Zealand, figures out of China show about one-in-five people who were infected became severely ill.
