1963 general election

The 1963 general election was held on Saturday, 30 November.[1] A total of 80 MPs were elected; 52 represented North Island electorates, 24 represented South Island electorates, and the remaining four represented Māori electorates; this was a gain of one electorate for the North Island from the South Island since the 1960 election.[2] 1,345,836 voters were enrolled and the official turnout at the election was 89.6%.[1]


The 34th Parliament sat for three sessions, and was prorogued on 21 October 1966.[3]

The National Party had come to power at the 1960 election, and Keith Holyoake had formed the second Holyoake Ministry on 12 December 1960, which stayed in power until Holyoake stepped down in early 1972. The second National Government remained in place until its defeat at the 1972 election towards the end of that year.[4]
