In the New Zealand Parliament there are seven parliamentary parties represented by 121 MPs. These MPs represent 64 general electorates and seven Māori electorates. The other 50 MPs are selected from the party lists.
Parliament's decisions affect all New Zealanders. Have your say and influence the laws passed by Parliament. You can get involved by voting in elections, contacting an MP, making a submission or petitioning Parliament.
