wellington, In the upcoming general election to be held in New Zealand, the country’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern plans to stay away from the polls. According to a report by the Reuters news agency, Jacinda Ardern said in a televised statement on Thursday that she was no longer interested in becoming prime minister. Meanwhile, she said she would of course not contest the election, but she knows the issues affecting the people of New Zealand will be on the government’s agenda until this year and the election. Ardern said there would be general elections on October 14.

Ardern said she would step down as leader of the Labor Party by February 7. A vote will take place in the coming days to elect another leader in his place. During the TV interview, he said he took time off during summer vacation to think about his future. Let us tell you, Ardern became the world’s youngest female leader when she was elected prime minister in 2017 at the age of 37. He has made headlines for his work during the Covid-19 pandemic, the Christchurch mosque shootings and the White Island volcanic eruption.

Inflation broke your back
Ardern’s third term was expected in this year’s general election, but rising inflation has presented him with a major challenge. The country’s central bank has anticipated a recession this year. Also, to control inflation, the bank decided to raise the record interest rate. For now, Ardern will remain an MP until April to avoid a by-election. Meanwhile, Labor will vote on January 22 to elect a new leader to determine who has two-thirds support. If someone doesn’t have that level of support, the party members will decide. The process is expected to end on February 7.
