Kieran Michael McAnulty was born on January 31, 1985 (age 37 years) in Eketahuna, New Zealand. McAnulty’s family has lived in the Wairarapa area for more than 170 years, with his great grandmother’s great grandfather, Henry Burling arriving as an early settler in what is now the town of Featherston.

McAnulty completed a thesis at the University of Otago in 2011 titled The role of political positioning in party performance in the 2008 New Zealand General Election. He has previously worked for the T.A.B. as a bookmaker covering the racing industry and an economic development advisor for the Masterton District Council.

He is a volunteer firefighter, board member of both Wings over Wairarapa and Golden Shears, a trustee of the Masterton Community Trust and Chair of Relay For Life. In September 2016 McAnulty wrestled a car thief who was trying to steal his ute to the ground in Masterton.

McAnulty stood in the North Island electorate of Wairarapa at the 2014 election but was defeated by National’s Alastair Scott. He had previously been offered the Wairarapa candidacy in 2011 but declined.

Member of Parliament

Kieran McAnulty stood for Labour in Wairarapa again in the 2017 election and reduced Scott’s majority but failed to win the electorate. He instead entered Parliament via the party list, where he was ranked 38. In November 2017 he was appointed Labour’s junior whip.

McAnulty was ejected on September 25, 2019, from Parliament by the Speaker of the House Trevor Mallard for making disparaging remarks about National Party leader Simon Bridges during a Parliamentary debate about Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s meeting with US President Donald Trump. In addition, Mallard also ejected New Zealand First MP Shane Jones for similar disruptive behaviour.

He contested the Wairarapa electorate for Labour during the 2020 New Zealand general election winning it by a final margin of 6,545 votes. On 2 November 2020, following the election, the Labour caucus elected McAnulty as its chief whip.

In a June 2022 reshuffle, Kieran McAnultywas appointed as Minister for Racing, Minister for Emergency Management and associate Minister of Local Government and of Transport by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern. McAnulty’s role as Minister for Racing gives him responsibility for the running of the Totalisator Agency Board, which he worked for before entering politics.

Kieran McAnulty was implicated in bullying accusations in August 2022 by fellow Labour MP Gaurav Sharma. Sharma accused McAnulty of “gaslighting me, shouting at me, degrading me in front of caucus members and other attendees at events and telling me that I was a terrible MP”. The Labour Party, including Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, rejects these claims.

Kieran McAnulty identifies as a socialist and supports a New Zealand republic, with a local head of state. McAnulty was previously treasurer of the New Zealand Republic campaign before entering parliament. He is in favour of decriminalizing cannabis and has admitted to smoking cannabis twice.

McAnulty, despite the profession of his Catholic faith, is in favour of more open abortion laws. He stated in Parliament “I was raised that my religious views are mine only. So I will not use my vote today to impose any particular view that I may have to prevent the choice of a woman to make on her own body.”
