News Desk: New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern shocked the country today by announcing she would resign from office in a matter of weeks.
“I am human. We give as much as we can for as long as we can and then it’s time. And for me, it’s time,” she said at a meeting of members of her Labour Party.
Ardern said she would step down no later than February 7, less than three years after winning a landslide election to secure her second term in office.
