On 8 February 2012, the Electoral Commission referred the following matters to Police:
- TVNZ OneNews coverage before 7pm on 26 November 2011. It is the Electoral Commission’s view that the broadcast breached section 197(1)(g)(i) of the Electoral Act 1993 because it included statements that were likely to influence any elector as to the party for whom the elector should or should not vote.
Oh dear; the state broadcaster has had fun at its rival's expense, but now the shoe is on the other foot. Is there ANYONE involved in the election in some capacity who is not under investigation by the Police?
