This was announced during a press conference, detailing that she will be in the post until next February 7, when the Labor Party she leads will find a new person to occupy the position of prime minister, as reported by 'NZ Herald'.

"Having such a privileged role comes with a responsibility, including the responsibility of knowing when you are the right person to lead and also when you are not," he justified, detailing that it was a decision he had been mulling since summer.

"I have given my all to be prime minister, but it has also cost me a lot. I can't and shouldn't do the job unless I have a full tank plus a bit of reserve for those unplanned and unexpected challenges that inevitably come up," the New Zealand prime minister has recounted.  

In view of this decision, the party will have to choose this Sunday, January 22, the new leader of the Labor Party and the new prime minister. In the meantime, the elected person will have to govern until October 14, when the general elections will be held, according to the newspaper.

Specifically, the New Zealand Prime Minister has stressed that she is confident that Labor will be able to win the elections without her, assuring that "a new pair of shoulders" is needed for the challenges of the next four years.

"I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved in the last five years despite the many challenges ahead. We have turned around child poverty statistics and achieved the most significant increases in social support and public housing stock seen in many decades," Ardern has highlighted of her term in charge of the government.

"In addition to our ambitious agenda that has sought to address long-term issues such as the housing crisis, child poverty and climate change, we also had to respond to a major biosecurity incursion, a domestic terrorist attack, a volcanic eruption and a global pandemic, and the ensuing economic crisis. The decisions that had to be made were constant and weighty," he added.

Ardern, 42, took office as prime minister in August 2017, becoming the youngest person in the country's history to hold the post. She then came to power after agreeing a governing alliance with the Greens and the New Zealand First nationalists, ending a decade of conservative governments.
