What happens when a country moves away from British-style, two-party politics and towards multiparty politics, adopting a European system of 'mixed member' proportional representation (MMP)? New Zealand's historic first MMP election was held on 12 October 1996. Voters' Victory? examines what New Zealanders could expect from MMP on the basis of international experience and theory, then focuses on the distinctive features of the election and its outcome: the party changes; the patterns of voting; how people used their two votes; how well they understood MMP; shifts in support for parties and leaders in the campaign; the composition of the new Parliament; the capture of the Maori seats by New Zealand First; and the fateful National-New Zealand First coalition outcome
