Last month, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s left-wing Labor Party was re-elected in a landslide, with 49.1% of the vote, according to preliminary results. His party did worse than expected from opinion polls, which saw them at gaining about a third of the seats.
“This is a cabinet and an executive that is based on merit that also becomes incredibly diverse and I’m proud of that,” Ardern said Monday when he announced the cabinet.
“They reflect the New Zealand who chose them.”
Who is Nanaiya Mahuta?
In 2016, Mahuta attended a traditional Moko – or Mરીori tattoo design – ceremony, becoming the first woman to wear Moko Cow in Parliament.
Rokuwai Tippen-Allen, a political journalist with Mokuri Television who wears Moko Cow, said Mahuta’s appointment was “very important.”
“The first face people see internationally is what they say, look and feel like M માori.” “The face of New Zealand is indigenous.”
He said the fact that Mahuta wore Moko Cow is very empowering.
Tippen-Elene added, “It shows that our culture has an international place, that people see the importance of Mઓori, and the difference that comes from being M માori brings this role,” Tippen-Ellen added. “Wearing the marks of his ancestors shows people that Maury has no boundaries and where they can go.”
Gloriz Hraman, a Green Party politician who was New Zealand’s first elected refugee MP, congratulated Mahuta, saying it was “exciting” that the country was “distorting” its voice in foreign affairs.
CNN Mahuta has arrived for comment.
