"Absolutely incredible": Jacinda Ardern stuns the world in two minutes

Jacinda Ardern has marked her second anniversary as the Prime Minister of New Zealand with a video, which has since gone viral.

In the clip shared on Facebook on Saturday, Ardern was given the challenge to list the policies and achievements her government has made in the past two years within two minutes.

Ardern, sitting at her desk, spoke about some of the Government’s accomplishments – including creating 92,000 jobs, planting 140 million trees, improving cancer care with more radiation machines, increasing the minimum wage, and bringing unemployment to the lowest rate in 11 years.

Although Ardern exceeded the time limit by 56 seconds, the video has received more than 2.1 million views and 43,000 shares.

“Absolutely incredible to watch this @jacindaardern video be pinged around the world,” one Twitter user wrote.

“In the last 48 hours, it’s seemingly gone everywhere from the UK to Pakistan, and has even gone viral in Lebanon – becoming another tool for protesters to push for change.”

“At a time when protesters in many countries are demanding that their governments address inequality and sustainability, the progress in NZ is refreshing,” former New Zealand PM Helen Clark posted.
