National MPs will now have two votes - one for a new leader and one for a deputy. It comes as Steven Joyce enters the fray and Labour hits a 15-year high in the polls. Bernard Hickey and Shane Cowlishaw report.
With just over a week to go before the election, expect a busy weekend as parties campaign hard for votes. Last night's poll did little to clear up who is leading this race. Meanwhile, the Saudi sheep controversy has reared its head again, both Labour and the Greens have pledged their support to the reo in schools and ACT has announced a tough on crime policy to try and grab some votes. Shane Cowlishaw reports.
