  • The number of Māori electoral districts will remain at seven.
  • In a 120-seat Parliament (excluding any overhang seats), the provision of 70 electoral districts would result in 50 list seats being allocated. This is one fewer than the 2002 and 2005 elections, and three fewer than in the 1999 election.
