New Zealand had its national election today
Landslide for incumbent La Jacinda and the Labour party
Australian Capital Territory (home of Canberra, the Capital)
Landslide for incumbent Labour.

In both countries, support for all current governments, state and national no matter what party, has boomed because the citizenry overwhelming supports their response to Covid.
And also, opposition parties have little oxygen in any kind of major crisis. All the focus is on what the Gov is doing - and the opposition cannot afford to be too critical at a time when everybody needs to pull together. They can only hope the incumbents fuck it up.
That hasn't happened there.
