SEATS IN DOUBT

DECISIONS ON MONDAY

Final counts of civilian votes in many more electorates were announced by the Chief Electoral Officer, Mr. L.

These electorates are Oamaru, New Plymouth, Raglan, Wairarapa, Eden, Waitemata, Otaki, Nelson, Motueka, Eastern Maori, Hamilton, Mariborough, and Palmerston North. The issue is most doubtful in New Plymouth.
