The approval rating of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is on the rise. She has been greatly praised for her handling of the terrorist attack that left more than 50 people dead in the country.
A survey from 1NEWS Colmar Brunton revealed that 51 percent of New Zealanders consider Ardern as their preferred prime minister, a seven percentage jump from the previous poll.
After a white supremacist attack on March 15, which killed 50 people in two mosques in Christchurch, Jacinda Ardern paid tribute to the Muslim community by wearing a veil. A strong gesture that has been praised by the community international.
“All I know is that I’m doing my job to the best of my ability,” Ardern told 1News when asked about the poll.
At just 38 years old, this former leader of the Labor Party has been head of the government since October 26, 2017. After the attack, Jacinda Arden quickly obtained a hardening of the arms legislation in her country. The country’s accession to this reform was first that of its Prime Minister.
The day after the tragedy, she aroused respect and admiration by going, wearing a black headscarf, to meet the survivors and the families of the victims. These different messages of appeasement and openness have been very well received by the local population and abroad. Her empathy and determination today give him a unique aura throughout the world.
