FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Papakura Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

Kei te pe¯hea koutou? As was largely ex­pected, Satur­day night’s elec­tion didn’t de­liver a clear in­di­ca­tion on who will form the next Gov­ern­ment. How­ever con­grat­u­la­tions must go to our three mem­bers of Par­lia­ment who held onto their re­spec­tive seats, all with healthy mar­gins (see page 3). Af­ter such a tor­rid elec­tion bat­tle ev­ery­one in­volved must be feel­ing quite re­lieved the cam­paign­ing is over. But the back­room bat­tles have just be­gun and so we prob­a­bly won’t know who our next Prime Min­is­ter is un­til af­ter Oc­to­ber 7 when the special votes are all counted. If you’re a bit over pol­i­tics there’s a fas­ci­nat­ing story on page 4 about the rise of il­le­gal em­ploy­ment con­tracts and there’s also a touch­ing story on page 6 about Age Con­cern’s vis­it­ing ser­vice for sick el­derly folk. Or­gan­i­sa­tions like the CAB and Age Con­cern do such amaz­ing and of­ten un­seen work in our community. I sus­pect if groups like this didn’t ex­ist, many in our re­gion would face far more hard­ship, so do take the time to read about their vi­tal work.

Nga mihi matakuikui, Justin
