Latest poll has Labour able to govern with the Greens

It sees Labour up one point on 44 percent with National also picking up a point to put it on 40.

The results are markedly different from Newshub's Reid Research poll on Tuesday this week, which had National ahead on 47.3 percent (up four points in ) and Labour on 37.8 percent (down 1.6) and the Greens out of Parliament altogether.

An average of polls released by Radio New Zealand on Wednesday, which included the results of Newshub's shock poll, put the two parties at nearly even support.

The elections in New Zealand are heating up, and taxation is shaping up to be an increasingly important issue.

But few believed that National had taken such a big lead and most party insiders thought the contest was much closer.

On September 14th the New Zealand Labour Party stated that it would not implement any new taxes in the country until at least 2021.

1 News reported the corresponding seats as: Labour: 55, National: 48, Greens: 8, NZF: 7, and the Maori Party and ACT one each, based on electorate seat wins.

Jacinda Ardern was down a point in the preferred PM stakes at 34%, while Bill English was up a point at 32%. New Zealand First leader Winston Peters is steady on five percent. The Maori Party is, however, polling ahead of Labour in two of the seven Maori seats.

The National Party has vowed to support free trade as global protectionism rises, in particular, by championing the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact, which Labour has said it would renegotiate.
