Alliances had to be made with different parties
Significantly, the Liberal Party had been trying to get an absolute majority in Parliament for a long time, which had not happened since the introduction of the proportional voting system in New Zealand 24 years ago. In this situation, various parties had to combine to form a government. But this time, writing the change of change, Jasinda Ardern and her party are going to form the government in Parliament on their own.
Strict lockdown imposed during corona infection
Of course Jasinda Ardern has won this victory only because of her work. The way the Corona infection virus has made stringent lockdown arrangements in the country to prevent the spread, their popularity graph has skyrocketed.

After this, here too, he imposed another strict lockdown and stopped the new spread of the virus.
However, the work of Ardern has also had a very pleasant result, the public has openly voted for him in the general election. After which she is now going to become the Prime Minister of the country for the second time.
