New Zealand electorates voting district for elections to the New Zealand Parliament

An electorate is a geographical constituency used for electing members to the New Zealand Parliament. In informal discussion, electorates are often called seats. The most formal description, electoral district, is used in legislation. The size of electorates is determined on a population basis such that all electorates have approximately the same population.

Auckland Metropolitan area in North Island, New Zealand

Auckland is a city in the North Island of New Zealand. Auckland is the largest urban area in the country, with an urban population of around 1,628,900. It is located in the Auckland Region—the area governed by Auckland Council—which includes outlying rural areas and the islands of the Hauraki Gulf, resulting in a total population of 1,695,900. A diverse and multicultural city, Auckland is home to the largest Polynesian population in the world. The Māori-language name for Auckland is Tāmaki or Tāmaki-makau-rau, meaning "Tāmaki with a hundred lovers", in reference to the desirability of its fertile land at the hub of waterways in all directions.

Population centres

The electorate is based around the suburb of Manurewa. It includes Wiri, Manukau Central, Manukau Heights and Goodwood Heights in the north. It stretches south to Clendon Park and Weymouth. [1]

Manurewa suburb of Auckland, New Zealand

Manurewa is a major suburb in South Auckland, New Zealand. It was part of Manukau City before the creation of the Auckland super city in 2010. It is located 6 km (3.7 mi) south of the Manukau City Centre, and 26 km (16 mi) southeast of Auckland CBD.

Wiri suburb in former Manukau City, now Auckland Council, in New Zealand

Wiri is a mostly industrial-commercial focused suburb in Auckland, New Zealand. It was formerly part of Manukau City until the merger of all of Auckland's councils into the 'super city' in 2010.

Manukau city in New Zealand

Manukau, or Manukau Central, is a suburb of South Auckland, New Zealand, centred on the Manukau City Centre business district. It is located 23 kilometres south of the Auckland Central Business District, west of the Southern Motorway, south of Papatoetoe, and north of Manurewa. The industrial and commercial suburb of Wiri lies to the east and south.

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. [1] 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.

Clevedon was a New Zealand parliamentary electorate from 1987 to 1993 and then from 2002 to 2008. For the first six-year period the electorate was represented by Warren Kyd. For the second six-year period, the electorate was represented by Judith Collins.

Manukau East Current New Zealand electorate

Manukau East is a New Zealand parliamentary electorate that returns one member of parliament to the House of Representatives. It was first formed for the 1996 election. Since the 2014 election it has been held by Jenny Salesa, a member of the Labour Party.

Wattle Downs is a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand.

The 2013/14 redistribution did not change the boundaries further. [2]

History

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; [3] she had opted not to be on Labour's party list that time. [4] She was back on the list (in position 12) for the 2014 election but won her electorate comfortably. [5]
