Jacinda Kate Laurell Ardern (born 26 July 1980) is a New Zealand politician and the Prime Minister-Elect of New Zealand. She has been the Leader of the Labour Party since 1 August 2017.
First elected to parliament as a list MP at the 2008 general election and has been the MP for Mount Albert since 8 March 2017.
She is the youngest ever leader of the Labour party, but she isn’t New Zealand’s youngest Prime Minister. That title goes to Edward Stafford who became Premier in 1856 and was about 18 days younger than Ms Ardern.
