Manukau East electorate boundaries used since the 2014 election

Manukau East is a New Zealand parliamentary electorate that returns one Member of Parliament to the House of Representatives. It was first formed for the 1996 election. Since the 2014 election it has been held by Jenny Salesa, a member of the Labour Party.

Population centres[edit]

In 2007, large changes were made to the Manukau East electorate. Its northern boundary extended past the Tāmaki River to almost as far as Sylvia Park Rd to incorporate Middlemore, Otahuhu and Westfield. Its eastern boundary shifted west to East Tamaki Rd resulting in East Tāmaki and Botany Downs being included in the new Botany electorate. Most of Otara and Papatoetoe West are now also included in the electorate.[1]

In the 2013 electorate boundary review, it was found that Manukau East electorate is above quota (based on the 2013 census). The draft proposal by the Representation Commission sees some population at Westfield to be transferred to the Maungakiekie electorate.[2]

History[edit]

Manukau East was created for the 1996 election. It has been represented by two MPs, both of the Labour Party, Ross Robertson and Jenny Salesa. It is considered one of Labour's safest electorates.[3] On 6 June 2013 Robertson announced that he would retire from Parliament in order to pursue a career in local body politics.[4] Jenny Salesa replaced him, with a comfortable, although smaller, majority of 13254.[5][6]

Members of Parliament[edit]

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