The governing party, National, lost 2 seats, leaving it 3 short of a majority. It has a support party, ACT, who have 1 seat. In the old parliament, National also had 2 other support parties. The 3 seats belonging to these parties went to Labour. Labour gained 13 seats, mainly from the Green party and the New Zealand First party, both of whom will be in parliament still. The National party will be negotiating with New Zealand First, to become government again. New Zealand First, though, could support a Labour/Green government. There are still special and overseas votes to be counted, before the final result. These are expected to favour Labour and the Greens, reducing National's seat numbers.
