Editor News Make a Comment

AUCKLAND, Tuesday: Stuff is throwing its resources behind its coverage the 2023 General Election on Saturday 14 October.

In an unsigned PR release, the company said: “New Zealanders wanting to keep pace with the election campaign can count on Stuff to provide unparalleled coverage including the scoops, the exclusives, and all you need to know.

“Stuff’s award-winning election team will be asking key political candidates the hard questions, giving New Zealanders the opportunity to find out more about the politicians and their policies. 

“The team is headlined by political editor Luke Malpass, chief political correspondent Tova O’Brien and national affairs editor Andrea Vance.

“Together with a wider team of experts from across the business, they will provide the latest news, insights, perspectives and analysis in the lead-up to the election, and beyond.

“The battleground issues are: cost of living, tax, healthcare, the economy, climate change and justice.”

“New Zealand’s number one website, together with The Post, The Press and the Waikato Times, will keep audiences up-to-date with the mood of the nation. Stuff reaches almost 3.4 million Kiwis a month across its business.

“Daily reporting across Stuff and its mastheads will be bolstered by three key debates, live streamed on, new weekly political podcast Tova, and a live election tracker.

Political editor Luke Malpass said (via the release): “This is a fascinating election with real-life and significant issues front of mind for New Zealanders.

“Cost of living, tax, healthcare, the economy, climate change and justice are all battleground issues.
