Ardern was under political pressure
Hipkins was in the public eye during the coronavirus pandemic for her key role in managing the crisis, but it was Ardern who attracted the most attention in government. She became the subject of discussion at the global level due to her new style of leadership. Ardern, just 37 years old as prime minister, has been praised around the world for her handling of the worst-ever New Zealand shootings and pandemic, but she is facing intense political pressure at home.
Announced resignation with moist eyes
He faced challenges few New Zealand leaders had experienced before. Meanwhile, several online comments and threats have been made against her for being a woman. Ardern tearfully told reporters on Thursday that February 7 would be her last day as prime minister. He said, ‘The sixth year of my tenure is going to start and in every last year I have given my best.’
Hipkins is a political troubleshooter
Ardern announced that the next general election in New Zealand would be held on 14 October and that she would continue to serve as MP until then. In addition to holding the Department of Education, Hipkins is also the Minister of Police and Public Services and Leader of the House. He is known as a political troubleshooter, who has played a key role on several occasions in resolving problems created by other MPs.
