NZ’s PM says ri­val’s lost lure

The Citizen (KZN) - - WORLD - Welling­ton

– New Zealand Prime Min­is­ter Bill English yes­ter­day de­clared his elec­tion ri­val Jacinda Ardern’s po­lit­i­cal hon­ey­moon was over and vot­ers were now more con­cerned about “money in their pocket”.

Ardern has en­joyed a spec­tac­u­lar rise since tak­ing over the cen­tre-left Labour Party last month, but re­cent polls have showed that her gains have stalled.

English, who is seek­ing a fourth term for the con­ser­va­tive Na­tional Party, said vot­ers' minds were turn­ing to prac­ti­cal mat­ters like “what’s go­ing to put money in their pocket”. – AFP
