The 2023 New Zealand general election was held on October 14, 2023. The National Party won the election, taking enough seats to form a coalition with its allies on the right wing of politics. The former CEO of Air New Zealand, Christopher Luxon, became the Prime Minister-elect after incumbent Prime Minister Chris Hipkins conceded defeat.
Luxon has emerged as a leader amid the cost of living crisis and three-decade high inflation in New Zealand. He is a conservative politician who has promised tax cuts for middle-income earners and a crackdown on crime. Prime Minister Narendra Modi congratulated Luxon for his party’s win in the New Zealand General election.
