History[edit]

The electorate was created for the 1999 election. The first representative was Mita Ririnui of the Labour Party, with Tuariki Delamere (Te Tawharau) coming second, Arapeta Tahana (Alliance) coming third and Kahukore Baker (New Zealand First) coming fourth.[2]

In the 2002 election, Ririnui was confirmed with 61.93% of the electorate vote. Rihi Vercoe and Hamuera Mitchell of Mana Māori and the National Party came second and third, respectively.[2]

In the 2005 election, Ririnui was beaten by Te Ururoa Flavell of the Māori Party. Hawea Vercoe of Destiny New Zealand came a distant third.[3] The 2008 election was contested by two contenders: the incumbent and Ririnui. Flavell was once again confirmed.[4]

The 2011 election was contested by three contenders: Flavell, Annette Sykes of the Mana Party and Louis Te Kani of the Labour Party. According to preliminary results, Flavell has a comfortable lead over Sykes, with Te Kani coming third.[5]
