New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern wins re-election by a landslide

A corona-free New Zealand has re-elected Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern by a landslide. Immediately after the results, characteristically she remained 'calm' and was just straight into work mode, her partner Clarke Gayford remarked. Today there is no need to wear mask or maintain social distancing in New Zealand because of her.

WELLINGTON, Oct 17: A Prime Minister who has earned much acclaim for her courage in locking down the island to keep coronavirus out, goodwill across the world for her acts of empathy in times of national distress and a name for simplicity in public adminstration, Jacinda Ardern has won the people's mandate hands down one more time.

Her emotional support to the Muslim community following the Christchurch mass shooting that claimed 51 lives at a mosque in one go, joining the victims in their grief after a volcanic eruption, the Bill to ban assault weapons and the 'Go hard and go early' handling of the corona pandemic despite the economic concerns won her huge domestic backing leading to the lanndslide victory in the polls on Saturday.

After the results, in a victory speech at Auckland, Jacinda, 40, said her Labour party got more votes this time than in any other election in the last 50 years. Labour took 49% votes and the conservative main rival National Party 27%. The Labour is also expected to win majority seats in parliament.

On hearing the result, she was 'calm' and just moved on with her work, her partner Clarke Gayford said. "And so from there she was just straight into work mode thinking about what she has to do and how we get through the rest of the night," he told media. They have a baby daughter.

There were two referendum questions also in the voting. One was about legalization of cannabis and the other was whether to permit “assisted dying” (voluntary euthanasia) by the terminally ill.

The election was scheduled for last month but delayed because of coronavirus. Election in the island is held under proportionate representation system. Today there is no need to wear mask or maintain social distancing in New Zealand as there is no coronavirus because of the strict enforcement of lockdown earlier. World leaders look up to her.
