Jacinda Ardern to Lead New Zealand After Deal With Kingmaker

WELLINGTON, New Zealand—New Zealand finally has a government, with Labour leader Jacinda Ardern securing the backing of a populist politician who emerged as kingmaker after last month’s national elections proved inconclusive.

Ms. Ardern managed to woo the support of Winston Peters, a 72-year-old political stalwart and leader of the New Zealand First party, with promises of tackling looming economic challenges with what Mr. Peters said would be a more “human face” than incumbent conservatives.
