Sydney:

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced on Thursday that she would resign next month. He told a meeting of members of his Labor Party, “My time has come. I don’t have the capacity to work for another four years.” Ardern became prime minister of a coalition government in 2017. He then led the centre-left Labor Party to a sweeping election victory three years later. But the recent elections have seen a decline in his party and personal popularity.

I am human…: Jacinda Ardern

Ardern said that her resignation would be effective before 7 February. The Labor caucus will vote on 22 January to elect a new leader. Deputy Prime Minister Grant Robertson said he would not put his name forward. Ardern said that there is no mystery behind his resignation. “I’m human. We give as much as we can and then the time has come for me, and for me, the time has come. I’m leaving because with such a privileged job comes a great responsibility ..the responsibility of knowing when you are the right person to lead and also when you are not.”
