Release: Chris Hipkins congratulates Christopher Luxon

"On behalf of the Labour Party I would like to congratulate Christopher Luxon on his appointment as Prime Minister,” Labour Party Leader Chris Hipkins said.

I wish Mr Luxon and his coalition partners well.

“New Zealand has been through some tough times but we are seeing the economy turning a corner, wages growing and climate emissions reducing. I hope this progress continues.

“I also encourage the new Government to commit to continue funding the public services that New Zealanders need and rely on.”
