Byelection date


The Northcote byelection will be on June 9, a week before Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s baby is due. “There’s a reason it’s not on June 17, which is my due date,” she told reporters when making the announceme­nt yesterday. The byelection is to replace Jonathan Coleman, who resigned from Parliament, effective April 15. It has been a safe National seat, but Ardern says Labour is in no way resigned to it staying that way.
