  13. 13. Question # 3 How is the political structure in New Zealand?
  14. 14. http://www.elections.org.nz/voting-system/new-zealands-system-government https://www.parliament.nz/en/visit-and-learn/how-parliament-works/our-system-of-government/ There are 120 members of the New Zealand parliament. They are elected for 3 year terms.
  15. 15. Parliament members are elected using the mixed member proportional representation voting system. At elections, each citizen has 2 votes: 1. One vote for a political party. 2. One vote for a local member of parliament. Political parties are represented in Parliament in proportion to the share of votes each party won in the party vote in the general election. http://www.elections.org.nz/voting-system/mmp-voting-system https://www.parliament.nz/en/visit-and-learn/how-parliament-works/our-system-of-government/
  16. 16. A political party that wins at least 5% of the vote on parties gets that share of the seats in Parliament. For example, if a party gets 30% of the party vote, this party will get roughly 0.30 * 200 = 36 members of parliament. http://www.elections.org.nz/voting-system/mmp-voting-system
