World reacts to Jacinda Ardern’s resignation announcement

New Zealand’s prime minister, Jacinda Ardern, in an unexpected announcement on Thursday said that she would step down no later than February 7, and that there would be a general election on October 14.

“I hope I leave New Zealanders with a belief that you can be kind but strong, empathetic but decisive, optimistic but focussed,” Ardern said in an emotional resignation announcement. “And that you can be your own kind of leader — one who knows when it’s time to go.”

New Zealand’s youngest prime minister put tiny country on the map in her five years tenure in the office.

The 41-year-old became a global icon for left-leaning politics and women in leadership, gained attention for bringing her baby to a United Nations meeting and wearing a hijab after a massacre targeted Muslims in New Zealnd.

Here is how the world including figures in government and others react about Jacinda Ardern’s resignation resignation:


“Thank you, @jacindaardern, for your partnership and your friendship – and for your empathic, compassionate, strong, and steady leadership over these past several years. The difference you have made is immeasurable. I’m wishing you and your family nothing but the best, my friend.”


“Jacinda Ardern has shown the world how to lead with intellect and strength. She has demonstrated that empathy and insight are powerful leadership qualities. Jacinda has been a fierce advocate for New Zealand, an inspiration to so many and a great friend to me.”

Reactions continue to pour in on the Twitter timeline to Jacinda Ardern resignation announcement:
