Headline

NZ pollsters discuss best practice as MP calls for poll ban

Comment

Most readers won't be aware of how Mr Peters first entered parliament in 1978, after a courtroom appeal in which he successfully overturned the clear intent of thousands of voters who "ticked the box" of the candidate they preferred rather than "crossing out" the names of canddiates they did not prefer. The court found Mr Peters technically correct, but in the process he disenfranched thousands of voters. And today he complains about the voice of the public "distorting" the electoral process.
