History[edit]

The electorate was originally proposed by Elections New Zealand as "Pare Hauraki-Pare Waikato"1 to even out the numbers on the voting roll in Tainui and Te Tai Hauauru.[3] Labour's Nanaia Mahuta won the 2008 election against Angeline Greensill of the Māori Party.[4] In the 2011 election, Mahuta defeated Greensill with a greatly increased margin of 35.5% of the candidate vote.[5] Mahuta won the 2014 election with another decisive majority.[6]
