Manurewa is a New Zealand parliamentary electorate in southern Auckland. Arena Williams has represented the electorate since the 2020 election.
The electorate is based around the suburb of Manurewa. It includes Wiri, Manukau Central and Manukau Heights in the north. It stretches south to Clendon Park and Weymouth.
In boundary changes in 2002, some areas moved to Clevedon and Manukau East electorates. In the 2007 boundary review, Wattle Downs and parts of Manurewa East moved to Papakura electorate.Boundary changes for the 2008 election made Manurewa even safer for Labour, although some party loyalists were apparently upset that this had the effect of making the neighbouring seat of Papakura less marginal and more inclined towards National.
The 2013/14 redistribution did not change the boundaries further.
The 2019/20 redistribution saw the electorate shift northwards, gaining the area north of Puhinui Road from Manukau East and losing the area east of the Southern Motorway to the new Takanini electorate.
Manurewa is generally regarded as a safe Labour seat. Louisa Wall won the Manurewa electorate in the 2011 election and was returned to the 50th New Zealand Parliament;she had opted not to be on Labour's party list that time. She was back on the list (in position 12) for the 2014 election but won her electorate comfortably.
Unless otherwise stated, all MPs' terms began and ended at general elections.

It saw the governing National Party, led by Robert Muldoon, retain office, but the opposition Labour Party won the largest share of the vote. Reorganisation of the enrolment system caused major problems with the electoral rolls, which left a legacy of unreliable information about voting levels in this election.
