New Zealand election ends in stalemate
New Zealand's ruling National Party has won Saturday's parliamentary elections but fell just short of a majority. With parliament hung, the two main political rivals are making overtures to the nationalist New Zealand First party, which is now in a position to play kingmaker. NZ First leader Winston Peters has so far given no indication which of the two major parties his organisation will support. Without NZ First, the National Party is unable to form a government as its only ally, ACT New Zealand, secured just one seat. Ms Arden's party can rely on backing from the Green Party - still not enough to govern in a coalition.
