New Zealand Election Results 2020 is quite expected but amplified. Labour Party, lead by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has crushed every opponent in the picture.
The Labour Party has secured 50 percent of the vote share that means it would get more than 61 seats needed to form the government. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern already hinted Kelvin Davis might become the new Deputy Prime Minister in the new government.
Labour Party is going to form the government on its own. This is a historic result for New Zealand and all because of the charisma and leadership of Jacinda Ardern.
Another woman who was in the fray for the election, Judith Collins saw a bloodbath for her National Party. The party lost key MPs in this election and even lost the strongholds.
The estimates already suggested that New Zealand Election Results 2020 would be siding with Jacinda Ardern. However, this was unprecedented.
The leader came out of her house to say a vote of thanks to her party.
She said as per the NZ Herald,
Tonight New Zealand has shown the Labour Party its greatest support in at least 50 years. For those amongst you who may not have supported Labour before… to you, I say thank you. We will not take your support for granted.”
Commenting about the people who switched their loyalty towards the Labour party, Ardern said that this party works for every New Zealander. After the win, she reasserted her commitment towards infrastructure, 100% renewable electricity, and the environment.
One of her key focus during the campaign was to reboot the economy and she would try to do that in the next three years as New Zealand and the world comes out of the pandemic.
The Opposition parties have congratulated Labour Party for the outstanding win. National Party, NZ First, and Maori party have congratulated Ardern for the astonishing result.
Some good news for Maori Party as well, as they come back to the Parliament as Rawiri Waititi registers win in Waiariki.
It will be a new challenge for the Labour party to post the win and they need to draw the maps. The national party needs to go back to the drawing board to see what went wrong that they lost a stronghold like Christchurch.
