Governance arrangements in New Zealand

WELLINGTON, New Zealand – Prime Minister of New Zealand, John Key, has managed to get the votes he needed to govern the country for a second term, having announced agreements with two minor parties.

These covenants had become necessary after the general elections of November 26, who left the National Party. His training had forced 60 of the 121 seats in Parliament.

Mr Key has entered into agreements with parties Act and United Future, two teams that have elected only one MP in Parliament. In exchange, the two members will get cabinet posts in the new government.

The observers expected such arrangements especially since Mr. Key had already concluded such agreements with these parties in the past.

In addition, Mr. Key is continuing negotiations to reach agreements with less restrictive three members of the Maori Party.
