Life on the political precipice!
The election’s over, but not the waiting. And it’s not the first time this has happened.

Association of New Zealand/Aotearoa (PHANZA) presents a ‘cliffhanger’ seminar series: Looking back, looking forward
The event will again be held at Blondinis bar in Wellington’s Embassy Theatre, following on from last year’s highly
successful ‘Four on the Floor’ seminar series at the same location.
On Wed 28 September, fresh from his appearance on TVNZ’s Election Night Special, Professor Nigel Roberts from Victoria
University will discuss past cliffhanging elections and the present one.
On Wednesday 5 October: a panel of three young politicians/activists (final line-up to be confirmed). They’ll talk about
their recent election experiences and tell us what they think the future holds.
