[4] In the 2011 election, Mahuta defeated Greensill with a greatly increased margin of 35.5% of the candidate vote. [5] Mahuta won the 2014 election with another decisive majority. [6]

1996 New Zealand general election Election on 12 October 1996

The 1996 New Zealand general election was held on 12 October 1996 to determine the composition of the 45th New Zealand Parliament.

It saw the National Party, led by Jim Bolger, retain its position in government, but only after protracted negotiations with the smaller New Zealand First party to form a coalition.

Māori electorates Electoral districts for Māori voters in New Zealand
