New Zealand: PM Jacinda Ardern touts COVID success, looks to future at Labour rally

New Zealand Prime Minister and Labour party leader Jacinda Ardern took the stage at a Labour campaign rally in Wellington on Sunday. Addressing a crowd of labour supporters at the Michael Fowler Centre, the New Zealander Prime Minister pitched her vision of what the country could be in 2030 under the tutelage of her party. «In the year 2030, we have long eliminated COVID-19 and our economy and our country have built back better,» Ardern prophesied to her supporters. «The decisions made, the consensus built, the unity shown, the action taken together has grown our country, grown our people,» she added. Ardern also rejected the National party suggestions that a Labour-led government would implement the Greens party's wealth tax bill plan. «I consider that the last roll of the misinformation dice,» the party leader told the media after the rally. «Any suggestion of picking up other parties' plans is mischievous and wrong, and I don't know how many times we've had to restate that.» New Zealand general elections were due to be held on September 19 but were postponed to October 17 after a late spike in coronavirus cases in the country.
