Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s Labor Party won a landslide victory in New Zealand’s twentieth general election, after which Jacinda Ardern was sworn in as prime minister for the second time today.
According to foreign media, polling stations opened at 9 a.m. local time on the morning of October 17 for the general election in New Zealand and a large number of people went out to vote. There are about 3.5 million registered voters in the country, of which about half had already cast their ballots.
The election was delayed by about a month due to the coronavirus. Voting for the general election was scheduled for September 19, but was postponed until October 17 because of Code 19.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is running for a second term to lead the country for a three-year term, competing with opposition National Party leader Judith Collins. Various pre-poll polls suggest that Arden’s party, the Labor Party, will win the election again.
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, 40, has praised efforts to tackle the Coronavirus epidemic and the shooting at a Christchurch mosque, but Judith Collins, a 61-year-old opposition leader, said that In the shadow of dangers, the country is suffering from economic recession, they have the potential to take the country in a better direction.
