Winston Peters out of NZ Parliament

Winston Peters is no longer in NZ Parliament.

Peters has had a four-decade long political career.

However, it appears to be over. His party, NZ First, was voted out of government for the second time. In the recent election, his party only received 2.7% of the vote.

At 75 it might be hard for him to get back into power. At this stage Peters has stayed low following the election. It is believed that he will talk to the press in a week or so.
