The Representation Commission has determined that, based on population growth, there will be one more electorate seat created in time for next years general election.    Indications are that it will probably be in the Greater Auckland area.

Put to one side the argument that the hard data in support of the move is questionable given the census was a right royal f****p and before you tear your hair out at the thought of one more snout in the trough the good news is that this additional seat comes at the expense of List MPs whose numbers are reduced by one.

Parliament will still comprise 120 MPs (unless there is a overhang).
