Manurewa (New Zealand electorate)

Manurewa electorate boundaries used since the 2008 election

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 in 2002, some areas moved to Clevedon and Manukau East electorates. In the 2007 boundary review, Wattle Downs and parts of Manurewa East moved to Papakura electorate.[1] Boundary changes for the 2008 election made Manurewa even safer for Labour, although some party loyalists were apparently upset that this had the effect of making the neighbouring seat of Papakura less marginal and more inclined towards National.

The 2013/14 redistribution did not change the boundaries further.[2]

History[edit]

Manurewa is generally regarded as a safe Labour seat. Louisa Wall won the Manurewa electorate in the 2011 election and was returned to the 50th New Zealand Parliament;[3] she had opted not to be on Labour's party list that time.[4] She was back on the list (in position 12) for the 2014 election but won her electorate comfortably.[5]

Members of Parliament[edit]

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