The New Zealand election

It is going on now, many say "too close to call," here is The New Zealand Herald (with updates on their home page), and yes comments are open, add what you know, and I will update this post in the morning.  National Party candidate Don Brash is, to the best of my knowledge, the best candidate running for a leadership position in any major country in some time.  And of course Sunday is the election in Germany…

Addendum: The vote is very close.  This is mixed member proportional representation, so the final outcome will depend on negotiating a coalition with the minor parties.  This could take weeks, with (boo-hoo) Winston Peters as the likely kingmaker.  Here is the voting; note that ACT is the libertarian party but they have only 1.5 percent.
