NZ Labour Leadership Shake-up

Posted on: Mon 7 Aug 2017

In what feels all to familiar for Australians, the leader of the Labour Party, Andrew Little has stepped down and announced MP Jacinda Ardern as his replacement.

With just under 7 weeks to go until the New Zealand Federal Election,  this bold manoeuvre has been interpreted by many as Labour attempting to revitalise its election hopes.

“I think it reflects that they’re willing to change and move away from the status quo” said Kiwi Correspondent Pearl Little about the leadership change.

Pearl joined Breakfast Host Tom Mann to discuss what this change will mean and other developments across the Tasman this week.
