Since leaving Parliament, ex-prime minister Helen Clark has made a point of not interfering in Kiwi politics, insisting, “They don’t need me chirping from the sidelines.”
However, in her latest chat with Woman’s Day, the former head of the United Nations Development Programme can’t hide her excitement over the Labour Party’s new leader, Jacinda Ardern.
“I think she’s had an amazing start,” Helen, 67, confesses in our latest issue. “The campaign was shaping up to be very, very boring, but it’s galvanised it. It’s put some life into it and got people talking about it, and that’s got to be good for democracy.”
