New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Arden has been left reeling after new polls suggest she will suffer a devastating loss and be ousted in the upcoming election.
The humiliating defeat has been on the cards for a while as Ardern’s grip on power has slipped in recent months due to the public rising up and rejecting her authoritarian brand of politics.
The country, which has seen huge waves of anti-government protests as the cost of living crisis continues to wreak havoc, will vote in 2023 with a new Kantar poll confirming that Ardern will suffer a landslide loss.
Rebelnews.com reports: In more bad news for Ardern, Labour is also dealing with internal chaos with rogue MP DR Gaurav Sharma accusing Labour of rampant bullying and gaslighting within Parliament.
Sharma, the party’s Hamilton West MP, went public with claims of bullying, misspending of taxpayer funds and other dirty laundry in an explosive 2,624-word Facebook post.
It is reported Labour will hold a special caucus meeting this week to discuss the claims.
Last week, it was revealed that Ardern’s popularity has tanked to just 30 per cent as preferred PM, marking her worst approval rating since coming into office in 2017, with at least one pollster predicting she will be dumped at the next election.
The Daily Mail reported:
Ardern’s Zero-Covid strategy kick-started the government’s fall from grace with New Zealanders weary after two years of oppressive lockdown conditions which saw the nation isolated and left behind as the rest of the world learned to live with Covid-19.
While the stategy had initial success and was widely-praised in the global media for eliminating cases in the first wave of the pandemic, New Zealand was left locked down and languishing behind as the ecomony and social order suffered.
