Opposition leader Judith Collins officially acknowledged Ardern's victory in a speech on Saturday night, congratulating her on an “outstanding result”.

With more than 80% of the vote counted, the prime minister's liberal Labour Party had nearly double the support of its main challenger, the conservative National Party, announce Euro News.
