Abstract

The return of the Labour government in 1987 in New Zealand saw the re-election of a party whose policies in the previous three years were very different from those with which it has traditionally been associated. The base of its electoral support has shifted quite substantially. This note outlines the major features of the country's electoral politics at present and discusses their implications for theories of electoral behaviour.
