Party Vote 2014

As the reveal of the new government drew nearer, New Zealand waited in front of their TV screens and computers, awaiting for the final word. After seeing many signs and advertisements, I can say that the support from the people is incredible. Seeing kids and adults alike, coming together and holding signs at the side of the road, showcasing who and what they believed in was pretty awesome. 

Just by looking at the vote count, National is the team bypassing everyone else. 48% of the votes were National while Labour lagged behind with only 24%. It seems that National's Mr John Key will be receiving his third term in the office as the Prime Minister.

Now that the elections are over, one of National's things on their to do list is bringing a simple economical plan to the table for the next three years. Their main goal is to Live within our Means, Start Paying off Dept and Keep Generating New Jobs. Since 12 months ago, they've grown eighty three thousand new jobs and by the time its 2018, there should be 150,000 new jobs. More on the subject about new jobs, National plans to lift the quality of teaching to provide a better education. Not only that but now they are providing free doctors visits for children under 13. 

New Zealand has voted and hopefully this is the best choice for our country. Although I am not a very big politics person, I actually can't wait to see what happens next time Elections come along. Maybe they'll get more creative with their advertisements, who knows. But for now, congratulations to National.
