Labour’s likely demographics

Now ’s list is out, we can look at likely of their caucus. This is based on an assumption of them having 35 MPs, being 27 electorate and eight list, representing 29% party vote.

Gender

  • Male 54% (48% of adult population)

So once again Labour has ignored their requirement to have gender equality. Only at 35% party vote do they get equal number of women and men in caucus.

  • European 49% (69%)
  • Maori 31% (13%)

A huge over-representation of Maori and Pasifika in their caucus and under-representation of Europeans and Asians (compared to population).

  • European Men 29% (33%)
  • European Women 20% (36%)
  • Maori Men 17% (6%)
