New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced her resignation on Thursday, effective at the end of the month.
“For me, it’s time,” she told her Labour Party colleagues. “I just don’t have enough in the tank,” he said when asked how he would last another four years.
Even though Ardern’s centre-left Labour Party won a landslide election three years after becoming prime minister, the party’s popularity and popularity have declined in recent polls.
When asked if she had found the motivation to continue as a leader during the summer recess, she said, “I have not been able to do that,” in her first public appearance since parliament adjourned for the summer a month ago.
Ardern has stated that she will continue to serve as an electorate MP until the next general election, which she has scheduled for Saturday, October 14.
She said she wasn’t leaving because she didn’t believe they could win the next election but because she was sure they would.
Ardern announced her resignation on February 7 and that the Labour caucus would vote on a new leader on January 22.
The current Deputy Prime Minister, Grant Robertson, has said he will not run for the position.
Ardern stated that her departure was not a mystery.
I am a living being. We must eventually stop giving as much as we have. I feel the need to get moving.
I have decided to leave my current position due to the significant responsibilities of such a prestigious position—the obligation to recognise your leadership potential and accept when you aren’t.
