Tukituki (New Zealand Electorate)
Tukituki is a New Zealand Parliamentary electorate, returning one Member of Parliament to the New Zealand House of Representatives. The current MP for Tukituki is Craig Foss of the National Party. He has held this position since 2005.
Tukituki is based around the southern Hawke's Bay region, with the bulk of the seat's population coming from the city of Hastings, with other towns drafted in to bring the seat up to the required population. In 2008, a general northwards tug on boundaries in the Taranaki, Manawatu-Wanganui and Hawke's Bay regions saw Waipukurau and Waipawa moved into the Wairarapa seat, in exchange for which Tukituki gained the suburbs and towns around Cape Kidnappers from the seat of Napier.
