New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's centre-left Labour Party won a landslide victory in the country’s general election on Saturday as voters rewarded her for a decisive response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The mandate means Ardern could form the first single-party government in decades.

Labour was on track to win 64 of the 120 seats in the country's unicameral parliament, the highest by any party since New Zealand adopted a proportional voting system in 1996.
