New Zealand House of Representatives election Dates 2017

New Zealand House of Representatives election Date: 23 September 2017

The New Zealand House of Representatives is a component of the New Zealand Parliament, along with the Sovereign (represented by the Governor-General). The House passes all laws, provides ministers to form a Cabinet, and supervises the work of the Government. It is also responsible for adopting the state's budgets and approving the state's accounts.

The House of Representatives is a democratically elected body whose members are known as Members of Parliament (MPs). There are usually 120 members, though this number can be higher if there is an overhang. MPs are elected for limited terms, holding office until Parliament is dissolved (a maximum of three years). A government has formed the party or coalition with the majority of MPs. If no majority is possible then a government can be formed with a confidence and supply arrangement.

New Zealand House of Representatives election Voting Live 2017

  1. The House of Representatives takes the House of Commons of the United Kingdom as its model. The New Zealand Parliament is based on the Westminster system (that is, the model of the Parliament of the United Kingdom). As a democratic institution, the primary role of the House of Representatives is to provide representation for the people and to pass legislation on behalf of the people (see below)
  2. The House of Representatives plays an important role in responsible government. The Government of New Zealand (the executive branch, headed by the Cabinet) draws its membership exclusively from the House of Representatives.
  3. A government is formed when a single party or group of parties can show that they have the "confidence" (support) of the House. This can involve making agreements among several parties. Some may join a coalition government, while others may stay outside the Government but agree to support it on confidence votes. 


    Electoral system of New Zealand

All New Zealand citizens 18 years or older may vote in general elections, which are conducted by secret ballot. New Zealand was the first self-governing territory to enfranchise women, starting from the 1893 election.

Since the 1996 election, a form of proportional representation called mixed-member proportional (MMP) has been used. Under the MMP system, each person has two votes; one is for electoral seats (including some reserved for Māori), and the other is for a party. Since the 2014 election, there have been 71 electorate seats (which includes 7 Māori electorates), and the remaining 49 seats are assigned so that representation in parliament reflects the party vote, although a party has to win one electoral seat or 5 percent of the total party vote before it is eligible for these seats.
