Jacinda Ardern is New Zealand's latest Prime Minister

As the days grow into nights and the nights into mornings while we wait for the anointment as the conspiracies grow

"Mr Peters and New Zealand First were a party of their word, that provided stability and we delivered", she told Radio New Zealand.

Outgoing Prime Minister Bill English, who appeared emotional, said he was naturally disappointed but felt he'd left New Zealand in good shape and that the country has plenty of opportunities ahead.

Webb's tweet got hundreds of replies, including one from former Prime Minister Helen Clark, who said: "That's New Zealand!"

There was also no news on what agreements Labour had made with NZ First to secure its support, though Ardern hinted that her plan to implement a water tax had softened during negotiations and said she and Peters were united in their belief that the regions of New Zealand had been "neglected" and needed significant investment. Ardern will be the youngest-ever woman to lead the country.

By election day on September 23, expectations had shifted.

Peters said the Greens will not be an official coalition party, meaning their support will be policy by policy.

Green party lawmakers will be offered ministerial portfolios in the next government, Ardern said.

NFL Comisssioner and QB Colin Kaepernick
Goodell, speaking to reporters after a two-day owners meeting in NY , announced no plans to change the league's policy. Other players followed suit, and the movement spread after criticism from US President Donald Trump last month.

New Zealanders will vote on legalising cannabis for personal use following a change in government.

Climate change and associate finance are both expected to go to Greens leader James Shaw.

"A country where our environment is protected, where we look after the most vulnerable, where we support our families, where we make sure people have the most basic of needs, like a roof over their head".

After she took control of Labour, the party surged in the polls, leading the press to coin the term "Jacindamania".

Ms Ardern combined an enthusiastic persona, optimistic campaign message (Labour's slogan was "Let's do this") and redistributive economic policies, such as free university education, a focus on eliminating child poverty and a pledge to build 10,000 affordable houses a year.

National leader Bill English had been PM since December past year. It's traditional for political leaders to congratulate and welcome newly elected colleagues from around the world, and given Australia's close relationship to New Zealand it might have been fair to expect the same thing this time around.

This story was first published on CNN.com, "Jacinda Ardern to become New Zealand Prime Minister".
