Overview: New Zealand

New Zealand's National Party had come close to winning an outright victory in the sixth election under the Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) system in November 2011.The MMP electoral system is modelled on the German system. Under MMP, voters are given two votes - one for a local MP (an electorate vote) and one for a political party (a party list vote). Maori citizens may choose to be on either the General or the Maori electoral roll. There are 121 seats in the current Parliament for the three year term following the November 2011 election. There are 70 electorate seats, including seven representing Maori electorates. An additional 51 party list seats are allocated to political parties in order to ensure that the total representation of those parties in Parliament reflects their percentage share of the party list vote.
