Jacinda Ardern has begun her victory speech after the Labour Party's crushing victory in New Zealand's general election.

Jacinda Ardern has won a second term as New Zealand's Prime Minister. Her Labour Party looks likely to score the highest result that any party has achieved since the current political system was introduced in 1996. #jacindaardern #nzpol
