ENG:

 

The New Zealand Labour Party (Māori: Rōpū Reipa o Aotearoa) is a centre-left New Zealand political party, and one of the two major parties in New Zealand politics. The party was founded in 1916, making it New Zealand's oldest political party.

 

Labour was last in government from 1999 to 2008 with Helen Clark as party leader and Prime Minister. Since the party's defeat in the 2008 general election, Labour has formed the second-largest (in terms of parliamentary seats) political party represented in the Parliament of New Zealand, and functions as the core of the Official Parliamentary Opposition.

 

Following the 2011 general election, Phil Goff and Annette King stepped down as leader and deputy leader respectively. On 13 December 2011, the parliamentary caucus voted David Shearer and Grant Robertson to replace them. Shearer announced his resignation from the role on 22 August 2013.

 

President: Moira Coats. orth

Secretary-General: Tim Barnett

Founded: 7 July 1916

Ideology: Social democracy, Social liberalism, Third Way, Progressivism
