`Jacinda Fever`

In the first 16 months of her term, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has been praised as a young and progressive female leader.

The 37-year-old female Prime Minister of New Zealand, along with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada and President of France Emmanuel Macron, are seen by some as bringing a youthful style, in contrast to US President Donald Trump.

A phrase has been used to describe the groundswell of support for her: “Jacindamania.”

The fever started when she announced her pregnancy not long after taking office, becoming the second world leader to give birth while in office (Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto was the first).

However, in New Zealand, she also faced many political challenges and difficulties, her handling of the economy was criticized, and her efforts to introduce a more reasonable housing policy were met with problems.

But these domestic problems have not diminished her popularity abroad as an inspirational leader of modern times.

Showing sharing and bravery amid great shock

Jacinda fever took a new and completely different direction in the past few days, when New Zealand experienced two bloody shootings in Christchurch city, killing 50 people and injuring 50 others.

New Zealand has never seen such an attack before, and the incident shocked the country, which is known for being beautiful, peaceful and safe.

In recent days, Prime Minister Ardern has become the politician who appears the most and speaks the most about the attack.

Many people have praised Prime Minister Ardern’s very timely response.

“Ms. Arden’s response has been very strong – and I believe she is supported for that both at home and abroad,” political commentator Bryce Edwards told Reuters news agency.

When she arrived in Christchurch on March 16, the day after the attack, Ms. Ardern visited members of the refugee and Muslim community.

“Wearing a headscarf is an act of respect,” said Negar Mortazavi, an Iranian-American journalist and political commentator.

Adil Ray, a British actor and television presenter, said he was really impressed with Ms. Arden for her `strong and decisive leadership.`

Cihangir Islam, a Turkish parliamentarian from the Islamist party, also praised Prime Minister Ardern.

Principal science professor Abdulkhaleq Abdulla in Dubai said Ms. Ardern had shown `strongness and steadfastness`.

A video showing Ardern hugging a Muslim woman and encouraging her made a strong impression.

“Can you imagine having a country leader who shows sharing like this?
