New Zealand election discussions are ramping up on social media as the country gets close to election date.

Twitter even launched a special Kiwi election emoji this week, a little kiwi with a voting slip that automatically appears when a user posts the hashtags #nzpol, #decision17 or #vote17.

According to Twitter, the most discussed topics of this election on the social network are immigration (46 per cent), followed by economics (19 per cent) and security (18 per cent).

The election might be serious but that doesn't mean Kiwis can't see its lighter side. Here are some of the funniest tweets about #nzpol from this week.
