Jacinda Ardern joined us live at 8pm to answer your questions ahead of voting day on Saturday.

To ask a question, go to our Facebook page.

Ardern first joined Parliament following the 2008 election and became the youngest sitting MP.

Just seven weeks before this year's election, she became the leader of the Labour Party following Andrew Little stepping aside.

After Ardern's ascension to the leadership role, Labour rose dramatically in opinion polls.

Under Andrew Little, the party dropped to a record low of 24 per cent in a TVNZ Colmar Brunton poll taken on July 22-27.

Now with Ardern at the helm, the party is polling at 44 per cent in the latest TVNZ Colmar Brunton poll released on September 14. National is on 40 per cent.

Previous Facebook Live Q&As have featured National's Paula Bennett and James Shaw from the Green Party.
