Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister-elect of New Zealand has stated that there would be no sizable reduction in the immigration numbers by the Labour Party. This was in reference to the demand made by coalition partner Winston Peters about the issue.

Mr. Peters, who leads the New Zealand First party, had campaigned in the election to reduce immigration to barely 10,000 annually from about the present figure of 73,000. Labour is opting for a reduction somewhere closer to 30,000. The stand of the Labour's remains unchanged after the negotiations held with Mr. Peters, Ms. Ardern stated in an interview.

the policies of the present coalition government, concerning Central Bank Reforms, enlarged Social Spending and Immigration Levels, are the issues which have caused concern to the investors, who are already worried, about the slow growth of the economy.

Ms. Ardern will become the youngest female leader in the world at 37 after assuming the charge of Labour. Her personality is being compared with the shift of generation earlier witnessed in Ireland, Austria, France and Canada.

Mr. Peters supported Ms. Ardern to assuming the charge after negotiations, even when her Labour Party had ended second in the election. The National Party which was in power could not win a majority.

Labour is scheduled to head a coalition of New Zealand First and also the Greens.

The campaign had centered on decreasing immigration, which had increased at a rapid place putting a strain and affecting housing, public services and also infrastructure. The immigration in some degree was required to address the skills shortage in many spheres.

There is a belief among the Migration agents that the immigration policy of the about to resume coalition government would impact heavily on foreign students and temporary workers. They had been attracted to New Zealand to gain residency and would think of leaving the country in great numbers.

an immigration adviser Mr. Connor Brady opined that “It is being said that the foreign students are preferring to work long hours to earn quick money on the consideration that the path to residency is closed and they are required end their stay here”.

New Zealand had attracted 122,000 international students in 2016 last year, gaining an increase of 40 percent in three years. It is hugely preferred by Chinese and Indian students.

Ms. Ardern was hopeful that the housing market would cool down because her new government would encourage construction of cheap and small homes across the country and introduce affordable housing.

Bill English, The former Prime Minister was disapproved by voters because he did not respond well to increased house prices that made them unaffordable to many countrymen.
