Green Party co-leaders’ joint statement on the pending arrival of the Prime Minister and Clarke Gayford’s first baby

Green Party co-leaders send their best wishes to the Prime Minister and her partner as they prepare for the arrival of their first child.

“I am thinking of Jacinda with so much excitement as she approaches giving birth for the first time,” says Marama Davidson.

“Her and Clarke have my best wishes for this special experience,” says Ms Davidson.

“This is an exciting time for Jacinda and Clarke and an historic moment for our country,” says James Shaw in reference to the fact that this will be the first time a Prime Minister in New Zealand has had a baby while in power.

“I join with Marama and our Green Party caucus colleagues in wishing them both all the best.”
