New Zealand’s new prime minister has drawn ire over his links to the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant

New Zealanders are fed up with what they see as the haphazard and often unethical way in which the country’s political parties have run their affairs.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is under fire after she said last month that the country should not have an independent regulator.

“It’s very much a case of a very small group of people in New Zealand that are holding us back,” she told parliament.

But she also said the Government needed to do more to ensure the future of the country.

Ms Arderne, who has been prime minister for just over a month, has been criticised by some for the way the country has been run in recent months.

In May, the country was rocked by the sudden death of one of its biggest public servants.

The announcement came as part of the first major shake-up of the Cabinet since Prime Minister Jacinta Peters took office.

New Zealand’s cabinet was formed in March and has been led by Mr Peters for the past three months.
