Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will officially return from maternity leave early tomorrow (Thursday).
In fact, she will officially be Prime Minster again at midnight tonight, when Acting Prime Minister Winston Peters leaves the country.
However, she will not return to Wellington until next week. She will travel to Wellington on Saturday with her partner and baby and set up her family in the Prime Minister’s residence at Premier House.
Her Thursday return will come exactly six weeks after giving birth to her daughter Neve Te Aroha Ardern Gayford in June.
