In December 2013 National list MP Katrina Shanks announced her retirement from Parliament and was replaced by Hayes. On 23 January 2014, the Electoral Commission declared Hayes was officially a National Party list MP and on 28 January 2014 was sworn in as a Member of the New Zealand House of Representatives.
Hayes contested the Christchurch East seat in the 2014 general election, losing to Labour's Poto Williams. However, she was re-elected as a list MP. In the 51st New Zealand Parliament, Hayes served as the National Party's Third Whip, as a member of the Māori Affairs and Local Government and Environment Committees, and as the Chair of the Social Services Committee.
