Hope for the Māori Party: Tertiary students in Waiariki voted Flavell over Coffey

Nathan Williams has spent the last week looking into how different polling stations voted, and how polling stations at tertiary institutes voted.

Today he’s looked into the tertiary institutes in the Waiariki electorate, checking out how students there voted for the Waiariki local MP.

In all but one of the four tertiary education institutes, Te Ururoa Flavell of the Māori Party had a significant majority over Labour’s Tamati Coffey.

If Te Ururoa Flavell can keep and expand that student support till the 2020 election, the Māori Party has a chance of return.
