Rt Hon Chris Hipkins
Chris Hipkins ‘Chippy’ is the Leader of the New Zealand Labour Party, Prime Minister of New Zealand, and Member of Parliament for Remutaka.
Chris’ vision of New Zealand is a country where Kiwis can create a better life for themselves and their families through hard work. His belief that every New Zealander should have the opportunities they need to succeed is why he got into politics – and it’s what drives him every day.
Chris became the Leader of the Labour Party and Prime Minister in January 2023. Amid a global cost of living crisis and economic uncertainty around the world, he immediately reset the Government to focus on the bread and butter issues that matter most to New Zealanders. He has put supporting families front and centre, while growing a strong economy that works for all New Zealanders.
