New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern wins 2nd term in election landslide

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern won a second term in office Saturday in an election landslide of historic proportions.

With most votes counted, Ardern’s liberal Labour Party was winning 49 per cent of the vote compared to 27 per cent for its main challenger, the conservative National Party.

In a victory speech in front of hundreds of cheering supporters in Auckland, Ardern said her party had gotten more support from New Zealanders that at any time in at least 50 years.

“This has not been an ordinary election, and it’s not an ordinary time,” she said. “It’s been full of uncertainty and anxiety, and we set out to be an antidote to that.”

Ardern promised not to take her new supporters for granted and to govern for all New Zealanders.

    some mentioned her a leader. a leader who has less the 50% of the vote is not a leader. she does not have a majority, even a slim one. she got less than her cousin in the British commonwealth!? to consider herself a winner of the majority of the people of NZ.

    she does not know the people of NZ. she does not know what they think, what they read and in what many factions believe in. stupidity like in other countries will lead to deception in the future and regrets. take an example turkey of Atatürk and turkey of er dogan policies. she needs a lot of deep thinking to understand the difference!

    she got like 9.8/20 mark. not even 10/20 of the votes! and she is proud. i do not understand the degree of being proud in her capabilities. but it is sad there are no persons who can defeat her and grab the majority of the acceptance by the people! is NZ bankrupt with high profile personalities in politics life. like the cousin in the commonwealth?!

    Personally, I wouldn't call 49% of the vote a landslide.

    I'm puzzled. She won 49% of the vote, which means she lost 51% How is this a landslide.

    It's good to know New Zealanders have not lost their mind yet. Jacinda is a rare PM and NZ is lucky to have her. Don't let the comments in this video – who are from people who do not even know what NZ's flag looks like – tell you otherwise.

    Without a vaccine (and there has never been a successful corona virus vaccine) New Zealand can never open its borders again. New Zealanders may not be too worried about this now, but give it a year to sink in that they are painted into a corner. Jacinda offers short term gain for long term pain, unless they get lucky with a vaccine.

    That's a leader and decent politician for you…I envy NZ for having such a great human being at the steering wheel.
    Poor Americans…they look at Lucinda and say : oh my lord !!! New Zealanders have her and we have the worst imaginable scumbag as a president…why,oh why?!?!
    I hope after her term is done ,she'll become Madame General Secretary of United Nations. Thank you.

    Im not from new zealand. I don't even know who her running mate was, but let me give my expert opinion. I see she was re-elected by a wide margin, so many NZ must like her. But may I say, And I don't like to say this, but she appears anorexic.! I am worried about her. She really cares about her NZ'ers , but does anyone else see this ?
