Chris Hipkins Sworn in as New Zealand's Prime Minister

 - Sakshi Post

Chris Hipkins was sworn in Wednesday as New Zealand’s 41st prime minister, following the Jacinda Ardern’s unexpected resignation last week.

Hipkins, 44, has promised a back-to-basics approach focusing on the economy and what he described as the “pandemic of inflation.” He will have less than nine months before contesting a tough general election, with opinion polls indicating his Labour Party is trailing its conservative opposition.

New Zealand Governor-General Cindy Kiro officiated the brief swearing-in ceremony in front of friends and colleagues after earlier accepting Ardern’s resignation.
