Three Indian-origin politicians, including two women, have been elected to New Zealand`s Parliament in the General Election, in which the center-right governing party has been placed first but failed to capture a parliamentary majority. Kanwaljeet Singh Bakshi, Dr Parmjeet Parmar and Priyanca Radhakrishnan have successfully made it to the 121-member Parliament in New Zealand. While Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi is all set to begin his fourth successive term, it will be Parmjeet Parmar`s second term (both list MPs of National Party), and 38-year-old Priyanca Radhakrishnan will debut as the Labour Party`s list MP. The centre-right National party will have to assemble a coalition if it wants to extend its nine-year hold on power. The National Party got 46 per cent of the vote, beating back a late surge by the center-left Labour Party, which received 35.8 per cent. Smaller parties took the rest.The National Party, which has been in power for nearly a decade, led by Prime Minister Bill English was contested by the centre-left Labour Party led by Jacinda Ardern, the New Zealand First Party and the Greens. Prime Minister Bill English delivered a victory speech in Auckland, New Zealand`s largest city, but his main challenger, the Labour Party leader Jacinda Ardern, did not immediately concede defeat. Bakshi is both, New Zealand`s first Indian and first Sikh member of parliament.
