New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that she plans to form a government within three weeks. She declined to say whether she would rule alone or form a coalition.
“Whilst there will be another three weeks before we have that final result, my expectation is that we will work on the government formation within that frame,” Ardern said.
“We’re cracking on very quickly with the work we need to do as a new team,” Ardern added.
Her new majority in parliament will allow her to form the first single-party government since New Zealand adopted a proportional voting system in 1996.
