Auckland Central Debate – will Chloe hold her seat?



Folks, The Working Group (NHS best weekly political podcast NOT funded by NZ on Air) are now into our season of live debates around NZ as part of our attempt at providing more democracy this election.

Last week we had a roaring debate in Northland, the week before that a rambunctious Party Debate, the week before that Ilam and the week before that Napier.

Last weeks Post Leaders Debate live from Backbenchers was viewed over 100 000 times on various social media platforms and this week promises to be bigger with the Auckland Central Debate live at 7pm on Tuesday night between:

Chloe Swarbrick – Greens

Mahesh Muralidhar – National

Oscar Simms – Labour

TDB Recommends

Feliz Poole – ACT  

We will be releasing a unique Curia Poll for Auckland Central. Will Chloe maintain her lead?

It’s a fascinating and surprising result!

Register your attendance here. because this will sell out!

It’s $10 on the door or watch live for free on Facebook, YouTube,, The Daily Blog or Juice TV Channel 200 Freeview and posted up afterwards on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Rova & YouTube 

That’s 7 live debates across NZ with unique polling live-streamed and simulcast on prime-time TV!

NO other independent news network is even close to doing what we are attempting this election, and all done without one red cent from NZ on Air!

It will be politics done differently.


  1. First debate I have seen and I was very impressed. All four candidates spoke well, even when defending the indefensible, the audience was respectful and the moderators did a good job drawing the candidates out. It made me feel a lot more hopeful about our country’s future if we can continue to attract people of this quality in to politics.

  2. 26th Released.

    Chlöe Swarbrick (Green Party): 26 percent
    Mahesh Muralidhar (National): 24 percent
    Oscar Sims (Labour): 12 percent
    Heeni Phillips-Williams (NZ First): 3 percent
    Felix Poole (ACT): 1 percent
    Unsure: 29 percent

  3. Chloe still be in parliament via her higher list position even if she loses the electorate. Does anyone have anything to say about the other candidates? Are any if them worthy of a bit of strategic voting?
