John Campbell to host 3News Mt Albert by-election special

John Campbell will bring New Zealanders LIVE results of the Mt Albert By-Election this Saturday, June 13 in a 3 News Special –  Mt Albert Decides beginning at 10.30pm.

Campbell will have updates beginning earlier in the evening from the studio, and later be joined by political commentators Linda Clark and 3 News political editor, Duncan Garner to discuss one of the high profile seats in recent history.

Crosses to 3 News reporters Sia Aston, Scott Campbell and Rebecca Wright from the National, Labour and Greens headquarters will also feature throughout the evening as the vote count unfolds between the 15 candidates.

In addition to this Campbell will present a web only programme between 9pm and 10.30pm which will feature updates and commentary on www.3news.co.nz .

Producer Keith Slater says the hotly contested seat has provided plenty of controversy in the lead up to the election and has relevance to more than just an Auckland audience.

“It is in many regards it’s just a by-election, but it will almost certainly be greater than the sum of its parts. Mt Albert Decides does have it all – parish pump politics, key infrastructure projects and, always, party politics, “ he says.

Be watching the 3 News Special:  Mt Albert By-Election Special – Mt Albert Decides at 10.30pm, Saturday June 13 on TV3.
