  • In New Zealand politics, Māori electorates, colloquially also called Māori seats, are a special category of electorate that gives reserved positions to representatives of Māori in the New Zealand Parliament. Consequently, every area in New Zealand is covered by both a general and a Māori electorate. Māori electorates were introduced in 1867 under the Maori Representation Act. The first Māori elections were held in the following year during the term of the 4th New Zealand Parliament. They were intended as a temporary measure and, despite numerous attempts to disestablish Māori electorates, they continue to form part of the New Zealand political landscape. (en)
  • Māori Electorates sind in Neuseeland speziell für Māori geschaffene Wahlkreise. Von den seit der Parlamentswahl 2008 festgelegten und noch bestehenden 70 Wahlkreisen sind 63 davon generelle Wahlkreise und die restlichen 7 mit den generelle Wahlkreisen überschneidend direkt der Māori-Bevölkerung zugeordnet. In der Wahl von 2005 gab es dagegen nur 62 generelle Wahlkreise. Der Begriff Electorate bezeichnet in Australien und in Neuseeland Wahlkreise, wogegen in Großbritannien damit das Wahlvolk bzw. Wahlberechtigte gemeint sind. (de)
