Prime Minister John Key congratulates Michael Wood on winning the Mt Roskill by-election, and thanks National’s Parmjeet Parmar for a great campaign.

"Dr Parmar is an outstanding MP who is already a strong advocate for Mt Roskill as a List MP based there," Mr Key says.

"She fought a hard campaign focused on the issues that matter but by-elections are always tough, especially when the seat has been held by your opponent’s party for some time.

"Mr Wood also ran a good campaign and I congratulate him on his win.

"Dr Parmar will continue to serve her community as a List MP based in Mt Roskill and the National-led Government will continue to work hard for New Zealanders and their families to help them get ahead."
