Act Party leader and champion for the End of Life Choice referendum David Seymour is celebrating a decisive YES vote from the New Zealand public.
The preliminary results, released at 2pm, show 65.2% voted yes, while 33.8% voted no.
The final results will be confirmed on November the 6th after special votes are counted.
David Seymour told Simon and Phil it's a good day for New Zealanders who voted for compassion.
"It was all about giving people choice, dignity and control if they're suffering at the end of their life.
"This means New Zealand is a compassionate country. The results show we are also a very intelligent and thoughtful nation."
