KATHMANDU: Millions in New Zealand are heading to the polls in the country’s general elections, BBC reported.
The vote was originally due to be in September, but was postponed by a month after a renewed Covid-19 outbreak.
Opinion polls put Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on course to win a second term, boosted by her successful handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
But the big question now is whether she will win a parliamentary majority, which would be unprecedented.
No party has won an outright majority in New Zealand since it introduced a parliamentary system known as Mixed Member Proportional representation (MMP) in 1996.
