Hauraki was a New Zealand parliamentary Māori electorate returning one Member of Parliament to the New Zealand House of Representatives. It existed for one parliamentary term from 1999 to 2002, and was held by John Tamihere.

HistoryEdit

Hauraki was the first Māori seat based exclusively around Auckland, and it was created at the time of the first review of Mixed Member Proportional (MMP) boundaries, ahead of the 1999 election. Hauraki was named after both the gulf at Auckland's eastern side, and Hauraki, a pan-tribal union based around an area including the Coromandel Peninsula, Thames Valley, and the Western Bay of Plenty.[1] Hauraki's boundary stretched out of Auckland, down through the eastern Waikato to include Morrinsville and the Coromandel.

Population growth saw Māori electorates move north, and Hauraki was disestablished for the 2002 election. The area around Auckland now belongs to the Tāmaki Makaurau electorate, and the southern area went to the Tainui electorate.[2]

Hauraki was also the name of a general electorate in use at various times between 1928 and 1996.
