New Zealand to hold elections on Sep 19


New Zealand to hold elections on Sep 19

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Tuesday (Jan 28) called an election for Sep 19, in a contest that will test whether her support at home matches her widespread popularity overseas.

Ardern's centre-left Labour Party-led coalition came to power in 2017, and is seeking a second term.

"I will be asking New Zealanders to continue to support my leadership and the current direction of the government, which is grounded in stability, a strong economy and progress on the long-term challenges facing New Zealand," Ardern told a media conference.

Ardern won a surprise victory in 2017 after a campaign focusing on positive messaging and connecting directly with voters.
