“The ACT Party sends our best wishes to Jacinda Ardern and her family as she announces that she is stepping down from her role as Prime Minister of New Zealand,” says ACT Leader David Seymour.
“I’ve known Jacinda for over a decade and while we rarely see eye to eye on political matters, we have remained collegial and have been able to team up for a good cause when the opportunity arose, most recently to raise over $100,000 for the Prostate Cancer foundation by auctioning off the signed “arrogant prick” transcript.

“New Zealand needs a new government of real change and ACT will be providing the ideas and the backbone to make the change real.”
