New Zealand Prime Minister Jasinda Ardern won a resounding victory in the country’s general election on Saturday. He won an unprecedented majority. The people of the country gave him a chance to implement his reform agenda. Significantly, Jasinda got the benefit of success in the fight against Kovid-19. With a two-thirds vote count, Ardern’s Labor Party stood at 49.2 percent and was projected to win about 64 seats in the 120-member parliament. No leader has achieved an absolute majority in this way in many years. Please tell that New Zealand adopted a proportional voting system in 1996.
Before the count was over, opposition leader Judith Collins called Ardern and congratulated him. Collins told supporters in Auckland, “Congratulations on your result, I believe this is an outstanding result for the Labor Party. It has been a difficult campaign.”
Ardern’s performance rejected pre-election opinion polls. Labor party president Claire Szabo praised Jacinda’s campaign, which took charge of the party in 2017. He said, “There is no doubt that the strong, great leadership of Jacinda Ardern has been a major factor in this victory.”
Ardern called these elections “Kovid elections”. His government succeeded in ending the community spread of the virus and spread it to the people in the campaign. The special thing is that out of a population of 50 lakh, only 25 deaths occurred due to corona. The epidemic is just one episode of a crisis that showed Ardern’s leadership qualities during the first round.
Let us tell you that Prime Minister Ardern showed both sympathy and decisive action on gun control after the killing of 51 Muslims in the attack on Christchurch mosques last year. Ardern handled the volcanic eruption on White Island. In which 21 people lost their lives and dozens of people were burnt.
Jacinda Ardern said this week, “Regardless of any crisis on my way, I assure you that I will give my everything for this work, even if there is a huge sacrifice.”
