Jacinda Ardern reappointment

New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern has been reappointed at the country’s Prime Minister as final election results showed her landslide victory for a second term.

Jacinda Ardern and other ministers took their oaths of office during a ceremony at Wellington’s Government House.

“I would say simply that sitting at this table is Aotearoa New Zealand,” Ardern said.

“They collectively represent a range of different perspectives, huge talent, enormous experience and, as you would expect in any time of crisis, a huge commitment to serving this country.”

However, the 20-strong new-look cabinet includes eight women.

“They collectively represent a range of different perspectives, huge talent, enormous experience and, as you would expect in any time of crisis, a huge commitment to serving this country.”

Arden’s liberal Labour Party won 49 per cent of the party vote in the election. On the other hand, the opponent centre-right National Party could only secure 27 per cent of the vote along with 35 seats.
