    So, 26 days after the General Election in New Zealand, the centre-right governing party has been ousted despite being the largest party.

    Labour has agreed a coalition with the Greens and New Zealand First to form the next government.

    It is actually far-right, like it sounds. It even wants to abolish Maori electorates. Wonder how well that party will get on with the Greens...
    They're an interesting bunch. Economically leftist and socially conservative.

    Immigration in New Zealand is a bit of a strange one. The Labour party tend to favour restrictions on immigration while the centre right National party favours a more liberal and open immigration policy.
