Labour wins the General Election

Labour has convincingly won the 2020 General Election.

With most of the votes now counted, Jacinda Ardern’s Labour party has won a historic 49% of the vote.

The result means Ms Ardern will serve a second term, and be Prime Minister for another three years.

The main opposition party – the National Party – won a disappointing 27% of votes.

Jacinda Ardern thanked her supporters in a televised event after the victory. She told the people of New Zealand the Labour party would “not take your support for granted.”

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – OCTOBER 17: Labour Party leader and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern claims victory during the Labor Party Election Night Function at Auckland Town Hall on October 17, 2020 in Auckland, New Zealand. Labour leader Jacinda Ardern has claimed victory in the 2020 New Zealand General Election to secure a second term as prime minister in the 53rd Parliament of New Zealand after defeating National’s Judith Collins. The 2020 New Zealand General Election was originally due to be held on Saturday 19 September but was delayed due to the re-emergence of COVID-19 in the community.
