Jacinda Ardern said it at a party retreat on Thursday

Jacinda Ardern has announced she will resign as New Zealand’s prime minister next month, saying she no longer has “enough energy” to lead.

Ardern choked on the lesson as she detailed how six years of “difficult” work had taken a toll on her.

She will also step down as head of the ruling Workers’ Party, no later than February 7. A vote will be held in the coming days to elect a replacement.

New Zealand is due to hold a general election on October 14.
