Jacinda Ardern resigns as prime minister of New Zealand

Jacinda Ardern made her last public appearance as New Zealand’s prime minister on Tuesday, offering a sound piece of advice to her successor.

Ms Ardern arrived at the annual birthday celebration for Māori prophet Tahupōtiki Wiremu Rātana, being held at the Ratana meeting grounds, the home of an Indigenous Mori religious movement.

Dressed in traditional Korowai – a Māori feathered cloak – the outgoing prime minister was greeted with embraces and songs, which marked her last appearance as New Zealand’s prime minister before she steps down next month.
