NZ's John Key celebrates emphatic poll win
New Zealand's governing National Party has won an emphatic victory in general elections, near-complete results show.
With almost all of the votes counted, PM John Key's party held 48%, with the opposition Labour Party lagging behind on 25%. The Greens had 10%.
Mr Key has recently been forced to defend his party against claims of dirty politics and mass spying.
TVNZ correspondent Damian Christie told the BBC, he still remains a very popular figure.
