NZ PM Jacinda Ardern Resigned: “Not Enough in the Tank” to Continue

New Zealand rejoices

New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern has resigned “unexpectedly,” after stating that she will not seek re-election because she doesn’t have “enough in the tank” to continue. This came after she specifically said she was staying in office. Who persuaded one of the most hated PM’s in the world to leave?

She leaves being worth approximately 11 million. That’s quite a lot of stuff in the “tank,” but apparently, she was referring to her own ability to lead amid criticism.

Ardern was known for clamping down on the freedoms of people in her country while in office, including draconian pandemic lockdowns, gun bans, and advocating for regulating speech online.

Ardern held such fringe positions on the pandemic that she authorized a nationwide lockdown because one case had been reported in the country. “Don’t talk to your neighbors,” she said at the time. “Please keep to your bubble.”

The 42-year-old also rushed to seize a moment of political opportunity following a shooting several years ago when she announced that the country would ban semi-automatic long guns and would force people to turn them in. New Zealand’s buyback program was a failure.

Ardern faced condemnation after she compared online speech to a weapon of war during a speech at the United Nations back in September.

“Just like our young offenders Jacinda had no concept of consequences from decisions. She has left NZ as a basket case due to Captains calls and completely disregarding treasury and other department advice.” @cwa_ix

Even if she’s stepping down she must be held accountable for all her crimes. And whoever is next, we will keep our eyes open because we don’t trust any of them anymore. We know what they’re up to! But today, let’s celebrate!!! @ArnCerv

These politicians are all the same! They wreck their country & on the way out tell you what a great job they did! She was horrible! Turned New Zealand into a leftist stronghold! Her covid restrictions were unbelievable! I don’t know why it took so long to get her to resign! @Barbrabee9

The question that remains is why she suddenly resigned. Is she ill? Did someone threaten her? Or has she received another job offer? The resignation that came with “not enough in the tank” brought celebrations for some.
