Ardern claimed that although she understood what it takes to be prime minister, she “no longer had enough in the tank to do it properly” but that there were others who could.
She claimed that her government had accomplished a lot and that she was stepping down despite her belief that Labour could win the next election.
Speaking to the media, Ardern claimed that her desire to quit had nothing to do with any particular “angle” or “true cause,” only the fact that she was “human”.
“Mom is excited to be there for you when you start school next year, Neve,” she said. To Clarke: “Let’s wed at last.”
According to the regional news outlet NZ Herald, Ardern declared at a live press conference that the past five and a half years have been “the most fulfilling of my life.”
“I’m quitting because the responsibility that comes with such a privileged profession is heavy. Knowing when you are qualified to lead and when you are not is your responsibility “She spoke.
On Saturday, the Labour Party caucus will vote to start the process of finding Ardern’s replacement.
Ardern is one of the youngest female state leaders in the world, having taken office in 2017 at the age of 37. She is also a rare example of a working mother.
