He was elected to Parliament for the Manawatu seat for the National Party in 1990, winning the seat from Labour. But he was dissatisfied with the monetarist policy of Ruth Richardson, known as Ruthanasia, which the fourth National Government was following.
In 1992 MacIntyre and fellow dissident National MP Gilbert Myles and member Frank Grover formed the New Zealand Liberal Party, which soon joined the Alliance, as the new Liberal Party with two first-term MPs was having organisational difficulties. MacIntyre stayed with the Liberal Party within the (left-wing) Alliance, though Myles then joined the New Zealand First Party.
MacIntyre lost his seat at the 1993 election then later stood as a list candidate for the Alliance in 1996, but was unsuccessful and retired from politics.
