Chris Hipkins, 44, was sworn in as New Zealand’s 41st prime minister on Wednesday, according to the country’s public broadcaster RNZ.

Jacinda Ardern left Parliament as prime minister for the last time this morning following the formal transfer of power. She then went to Government House to formally tender her resignation and move to the opposition benches.

According to RNZ, Hipkins and new deputy prime minister Carmel Sepuloni arrived there for the swearing-in ceremony at around 11.20 a.m. Hipkins has indicated that his cabinet will place a high priority on combating the “inflation pandemic.”

Hipkins was first elected to the legislature in 2008, and in November 2020, he was named Covid-19’s minister.

He served as the minister of public service, education, and law enforcement.

A leadership election for the Labour Party was sparked by Jacinda Ardern’s unexpected resignation.

After managing New Zealand during the coronavirus pandemic for five and a half years, Ardern made the shocking decision.

Ardern claimed that although she understood what it took to be prime minister, she “no longer had enough in the tank to do it justice” 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.
