The final tally of votes on Saturday saw us achieve our best election result ever. The end count lifted our share of the party vote to 11.06 percent, enough to deliver Mojo Mathers as our 14th MP.
This is a historic result for us, cementing our place as the third party in New Zealand politics. Our new MPs have hit the ground running and are looking forward to making good green change.
We want to work constructively in this Parliament to advance our key issues of cleaning up our rivers, raising kids out of poverty and creating good green jobs, while also providing opposition leadership on issues such as asset sales, welfare reform and charter schools.
Thank you to everyone who voted Green and made this historic result happen.
