Ardern new Labour deputy leader

Jacinda Ardern and Andrew Little.

Jacinda Ardern has been confirmed as Labour's new deputy leader.

Labour's caucus met this morning to vote on the role of deputy after Annette King stepped down from the role last week.

This is great news for Labour and for the country. Jacinda's dedication, intelligence and ability to engage everyone she meets will be a huge asset to the country - as a Minister after this year's election - and to our campaign as we travel the country together meeting voters who will decide the next government of New Zealand," says Labour leader Andrew Little.
