The 2023 New Zealand election saw Christopher Luxon, the leader of the center-right opposition, emerge as the victor. On Saturday night, Prime Minister Chris Hipkins of the Labour party conceded defeat and expressed gratitude to their supporters.
According to Radio New Zealand, he acknowledged that the outcome was not the one they had hoped for. Christopher Luxon, who entered parliament in 2020, assumed the role of opposition leader in November 2021.
According to The New Zealand Herald, the projections indicate that National is expected to secure 51 seats, Labour 33, the Greens 13, Act 12, NZ First 8, and Te Pāti Māori four seats.
