Of the 120 MPs in Parliament, 50 are chosen from party lists.
The higher a candidate's ranking on a party list, the more likely they are to enter Parliament.
Some candidates on the list are also contesting an electorate seat, while some are only seeking election through the list.
The number of MPs a party has in Parliament is decided by its share of the party vote. For example, a party's share of the vote may entitle it to 40 MPs. If it has won 30 electorate seats, those successful candidates will go into Parliament and the party's remaining 10 MPs will be chosen from the party list.
To find out who is standing in each electorate, see Radio New Zealand's Electorates section
