Here’s what Jacinda Ardern did as New Zealand’s prime minister

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, who received world reward for her empathetic management fashion and was seen by many liberals as a younger, progressive antidote to populist politics elsewhere, introduced her resignation Thursday.

Ardern, 42, stated she had determined, after a southern hemisphere summer time break, that she not had sufficient left within the “tank” to contest nationwide elections later this yr. “I am human. Politicians are human. We give all that we can, for as long as we can, and then it’s time,” she instructed reporters.
