Manurewa electorate 2008.png

Manurewa is a New Zealand Parliamentary electorate in southern Auckland. Louisa Wall has represented the electorate since the 2011 election.

Population centres[edit]

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]

In boundary changes for the 2008 general election, Wattle Downs and parts of Manurewa East moved to Papakura electorate.[1] In boundary changes in 2002, some areas moved to Clevedon and Manukau East electorates.

History[edit]

Manurewa is generally regarded as a safe Labour seat.

Boundary changes for the 2008 election made Manurewa even safer for Labour, although some party loyalists were reportedly upset that this had the effect of making the neighbouring seat of Papakura less marginal and more inclined towards National, especially as Manurewa had always been safe for Labour.

Unless otherwise stated, all MPs' terms began and ended at general elections.
