2023 New Zealand general election

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The 2023 New Zealand general election will determine the 54th Parliament of New Zealand. It will be held on 14 October 2023.

Voters will elect 120 members to the New Zealand House of Representatives under the mixed-member proportional (MMP) voting system, a proportional representation system in which 72 members will be elected from single-member electorates and 48 members from closed party lists.

At the 2020 election, the centre-left Labour Party, led by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, won an outright majority in the House. The main opponent to the Labour government is the centre-right National Party, led by Christopher Luxon.

On 19 January 2023, Ardern announced she would resign as Labour leader and prime minister before 7 February.[1]
