ELECTION DATE: 17 Sept. now 2-1

Scoop is reporting:
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson Emma Reilly said the forum secretariat was asked by New Zealand if the dates could be changed due to the NZ general election expected to be held at the same time: “The secretariat circulated this request to members, who agreed to the change,”
Well that seems to reduce the chances of an August 20 date, seems more definitely a late September date.

Option 1: Date of the next New Zealand General Election.

i'm not changing my bet, as i sort of feel once you've made it you shouldn't change it, but everything i am hearing is for Sept 17th.

which is annoying because i always have a little holiday the weekend after the election, and i can't go away the weekend of the 24th as i have a work thing on all weekend, grrrr.
