Labour's Grant Robertson is over the moon with last night's election result.
The finance spokesman told Kerre McIvor you never take anything for granted, and he's humbled by the support the party's had.
"I've spent a lot of time travelling around New Zealand the past few weeks. I really felt that on the ground, people were supporting us."
Robertson is confident the party would have won the election - even without the Covid-19 pandemic.
He says the Government's been re-elected on the back of a strong first term performance.
"We managed the economy well, we were rebuilding public services, along with making sure we were laying the platform for the big infrastructure boost we needed."
