Jacinda Ardern writes Winston Peters letter of expectations

May 17, 2018

Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, has released a letter outlining Winston Peters’ duties while she is on maternity leave.

Deputy prime minister Mr Peters will act in Jacinda Ardern’s role during the six weeks she takes off after childbirth. She is due on 17 June.

Ms Ardern said the working arrangement was exactly the same as when she travelled overseas. The only difference is the length of time.

Mr Peters would manage the day-to-day business of government, such as answering questions in parliament and attending official engagements.

He would continue to consult Ms Ardern on major issues and matters of national security.

Mr Peters said he was “ready for it”.
