Chris Hipkins will become the next Prime Minister of New Zealand

Labor Party MP Chris Hipkins will become the new Prime Minister after Jacinda Ardern in New Zealand. Chris Hipkins was made Kovid Minister in the year 2020 to deal with the epidemic. During that time Chris's work was appreciated worldwide.
Chris is currently the Police and Education Minister of New Zealand. He is known as the Trouble Shooter in the Labor Party. Bringing the Labor Party to power in the country for the third time in October will be a big challenge for them.
Chris Ardern must officially win the party's endorsement on Sunday to become prime minister. While Jacinda will officially submit her resignation to the Governor General on 7 February. Who will appoint Chris Hipkins as Prime Minister, accepting him on behalf of King Charles III?
Jacinda Ardern said in her resignation announcement that she was tired. He has no courage left to fulfill the responsibility of being the Prime Minister. On the other hand, experts believe that the Labor Party has been in power in New Zealand since 2017, so anti-incumbency is very high.
According to the BBC, New Zealand is currently struggling with inflation and social equality. Due to this, there has been a significant decrease in the popularity of the Labor Party. Now Chris has to be ready for all these challenges. Elections are to be held in New Zealand in October this year.
Jacinda Ardern was born on July 26, 1980, in Hamilton, New Zealand. His father Ross Ardern was a police officer and his mother Laurel Cook. Jacinda was always interested in politics. That's why she joined the Labor Party of New Zealand in the year 2001 at the age of just 18. She worked as a researcher for the then Prime Minister Helen Clark.
She became the youngest Prime Minister of New Zealand in 2017 at the age of 37. Since then, she became very popular because of her handling of many crises in a better way.
In May 2021, Fortune magazine ranked Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern first on the list of the world's greatest leaders. He received this title for his work in preventing the spread of the Corona epidemic, taking cognizance of the Christ Church incident and the volcanic eruption in White Island.
