New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her Labor Party have achieved a historic victory in the Pacific nation's parliamentary election.

"Historic Night"

The newspaper "New Zealand Herald" spoke of a "Historic Night" given almost 50 percent of the votes for Labor. The next few years would not be easy, said Ardern on Saturday with a view to the corona pandemic and its consequences. But her government wanted to spread hope and optimism, she said, beaming in front of cheering supporters. "We'll get started tomorrow!"

This was not a normal choice, said Ardern, who presented herself entirely in the party color red. “And these are not normal times.” But she still strives for “positive” governance. "It is a privilege to work for the people in New Zealand and to be their head of government."

Ardern has so far ruled a coalition of Labor, the Greens and the populist New Zealand First party, which is known for its anti-immigration positions.

Conservatives lose, left parties increase

Three years ago, the small party tipped the scales and surprisingly helped Ardern into office. Now she clearly lost. The Green Party, on the other hand, grew. A commentator on New Zealand television spoke of a "considerable left slide".

The conservative National Party with its top candidate Judith Collins (61) crashed and won only 35 seats.

The party had ruled continuously from 2008 to 2017. Ardern had already been the favorite in the polls leading up to the vote. Collins congratulated her opponent on the "outstanding result".

Ardern has gained a lot of recognition abroad for its handling of the Christchurch attacks, in which a right-wing extremist from Australia shot dead 51 Muslims in two mosques last year, and for its successful fight against the corona pandemic.
