PN Constituency By-election

June 27, 2018

Horizons Regional Council will be holding a by-election for the Palmerston North constituency following the passing of Councillor Pat Kelly over Queen’s Birthday weekend.


Horizons electoral officer Craig Grant explains that holding the by-election is a legislative requirement.


If a vacancy occurs more than 12 months before the next triennial general election, the vacancy must be filled through an election.


“The regional council serves communities from Ruapehu in the north and Horowhenua in the south, to Whanganui in the west and Tararua in the east.


Candidate nominations open tomorrow Thursday 28 June, and will close on Thursday 26 July, with voting papers sent to letterboxes from 30 August in time for the election day of Friday 21 September.
