“After this outcome we have the command to quicken our reaction and our recuperation, and tomorrow, we start,” Ardern said in her triumph discourse. “We realize the following not many years won’t be simple. The last not many have not been simple either, yet there have been chinks of light that have shone through even the most obscure of times.
“So once more, I state thank you,” she proceeded. “This has not been a common political decision and this has not been a conventional time.”
