Selfies, sendoffs and star power as Jacinda Ardern has her last day in the sun

No Comments

rom the moment of her arrival, Jacinda Ardern is surrounded by a crush of people: hundreds gather to ask for final selfies, record video messages for friends and relatives, or simply watch her pass by. A group of running children weaves through bystanders’ legs, pushing for a better view.

Over and over, she obliges, smiling for cameraphones, asking people’s names and jobs, cracking jokes, signing a worn blue and yellow basketball for a boy who pushes through the crowd.

A politician who always excelled at creating moments of humour and human connection, Ardern‚Äôs much-discussed star power was firmly on display in the North Island village of RńĀtana on Tuesday for her last formal engagement as the prime minister of New Zealand.
