Ohariu-Belmont was a New Zealand parliamentary electorate from 1996 to 2008.

Population centres[edit]

The electorate covered the northern suburbs of the city of Wellington, i.e. Ngaio, Tawa, Khandallah and Johnsonville, and also the adjacent suburb of Belmont in the Western Hutt Valley.

History[edit]

The electorate was established in the first MMP election of 1996. It replaced Onslow, but also included Belmont so was renamed Ohariu-Belmont.

In the 1993 election the Onslow electorate had replaced the earlier Ohariu electorate which had existed since the 1978 election, and when in the 2008 election the Belmont area was shifted to the Hutt Valley electorate of Rimutaka, the electorate was renamed back to Ōhariu (with a macron).[1]
