Mrs Burley said she has been voting Labour since 1946. Photo: SIMON EDWARDS Business as usual Passionate about education and keen to put the Upper Hutt schools review behind him, Mr Hipkins has built up strong contacts with local schools which he says are also a good window on issues in the community. This week would include a party debrief at Parliament and the conse- quences of the party losing several MPs who held significant roles. Locally it would be business as usual at his Taita and Upper Hutt electorate offices but staff contracts expire a month after election day. At Taita, Janette Granville was keen to stay on but in Upper Hutt Marlene Ditchfield will finish at Christmas to pursue another project. Mr Hipkins is the party's spokesman on ACC and Internal Affairs. It would be up to the party leader what spokesman roles he has this term. In the Maori electorate of Ikaroa- Rawhiti, which includes Upper Hutt, sit- ting Labour MP Parekura Horomia increased his 2008 election night majority of 1609 to 5924 over the Maori Party candidate because of the emerg- ence of the Mana Party. Voting system referendum Only advance votes were counted on election night. Of those, 53.74 per cent voted to keep the MMP system, 42.62 per cent for change, 3.64 per cent informal (no clear indication). In the second part of the referendum, 31.89 per cent voted for the old first past the system, 8.19 per cent voted for pref- erential voting, 11.24 percent for single transferable vote and 14.53 per cent for supplementary member. Informal votes were 34.15 per cent. Rimutaka, Ikaroa-Rawhiti results, page 6
