After the release of the final election results, Te Atatu National Candidate Angee Nicolas has lost her seat after the electorate flipped in favour of Labour’s Phil Twyford. Angee Nicolas would have been the incoming governments sole Pasifika MP, and so a coalition government with National, ACT and New Zealand First would have no Pasifika representation amongst its MPs. 

Rosetta spoke to University of Auckland Associate Professor Sir Collin Tukuitonga, who is co-director of Te Poutoko Ora a Kiwa in the Faculty of Medical and Health Sciences about What the official election results will mean for our Pasifika community
