The 2020 general election has given the Labour Party the numbers to govern alone while many National MPs will be out of a job.

With 64 seats, Labour will be the first party able to govern alone since MMP was introduced in 1996.

Judith Collins has conceded defeat, but says the National Party will make a robust opposition.

Winston Peters has frequently been a kingmaker after elections but this time NZ First has not made it into Parliament.

Meanwhile, Act on 8 percent will get 10 MPs and the Green Party on 7.8 percent will also bring in 10 MPs.

The Māori Party looks to be back in the House with Rawiri Waititi winning Waiariki from Labour's Tāmati Coffey by more than 400 votes.
