Hunua vot­ers stay with Bayly

Eastern Courier - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - IMO­GEN NEALE

An­drew Bayly has an im­pres­sive list of con­quests. Amongst other things, he has climbed Mt As­pir­ing and dragged a sledge 120km across the ice to the North Pole.

He can now add to that list a sec­ond term as the MP for Hunua.

Writ­ing on his Face­book page on Mon­day, the Na­tional Party MP said he’s ‘‘ab­so­lutely priv­i­leged to be re-elected as MP for Hunua and to con­tinue to be part of the 14 com­mu­ni­ties which make up the elec­torate’’.

The Hunua elec­torate forms a dog-bone shape, from half­way across the Mange­mangeroa Bridge at Somerville, East Auck­land, to Ta­pa­pakanga Re­gional Park, through Hunua and Pukekohe and out to the Awhitu Penin­sula. In 2014, Bayly won the Hunua par­lia­men­tary seat with a 17,376 ma­jor­ity. Sat­ur­day’s elec­tion night re­sult showed the ma­jor­ity had slipped slightly to 17,256.
