Māngere electorate boundaries used since the 2008 election

Māngere, styled as Mangere before 1997, is a New Zealand parliamentary electorate, returning one member of parliament to the Representatives of New Zealand. The current MP for Māngere is Su'a William Sio,[1] elected for the Labour Party. He has held this electorate since 2008.

Population centres[edit]

Māngere is based around the South Auckland suburbs of Mangere, Mangere Bridge, Favona and Mangere East. It has existed as an electorate since 1969; its boundaries were extended ahead of the introduction of mixed-member proportional (MMP) voting in 1996, swallowing up a section of the former Papatoetoe electorate.

In the 2007 boundary redistribution, Papatoetoe and Middlemore were transferred to the Manukau East electorate.[2] The 2013/14 redistribution did not change the boundaries further.[3]

History[edit]

Māngere, and all of South Auckland, forms the safest part of the Labour Party's core vote. Even during landslide elections in the National Party's favour, such as in 1975 and 1990, no Labour candidate for a South Auckland seat was seriously troubled.

Māngere was first represented by Colin Moyle of the Labour Party in 1969. Moyle represented the electorate until his resignation in 1977 over what became known as the 'Moyle Affair', and a subsequent by-election was won by a young barrister named David Lange, who would become Prime Minister after Labour's 1984 election victory. Lange retired in 1996 and the nomination was handed to Taito Phillip Field, at the time the MP for Otara. Field was returned with a high share of the vote in subsequent elections, but following his expulsion from the Labour caucus in 2007, his former party nominated former Manukau City deputy mayor Su'a William Sio in his place, who won the seat with a majority of over 7,000 votes in the 2008 election.[1] In the 2011 and 2014 elections, Sio's majority was circa 15,000 votes.[4][5]
