Green Party congratulates the Prime Minister and Clarke Gayford

The Green Party wishes to extend its warmest congratulations to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and her partner Clarke Gayford on the news that they are expecting a child. 

“This is wonderful news. On behalf of the Green Party, I’d like to congratulate Jacinda and Clarke, and wish them the very best for parenthood,” said Green Party Co-leader James Shaw.

“That a woman can be the Prime Minister of New Zealand and choose to have a family while in office says a lot about the kind of country we are and that we can be – modern, progressive, inclusive, and equal.

“For that reason I know this announcement will be significant for many women, in particular, and that all New Zealanders will share in the Prime Minister’s joy today,” said Mr Shaw.
