The seat for Palmerston North's MP is in for a battle its never seen before. National's candidate William Wood, 18, has launched campaign for the city today. Labour incumbent Iain Lees-Galloway, 41, said he will be campaigning on his record of action of the city.

Can a recent high school graduate match - and beat - a seasoned politician for the people's vote?

What do you think?
