Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern will be the Guest Editor of the New Zealand Herald's 125th Suffrage edition to be published on September 19.
The commemorative edition will mark the anniversary of New Zealand women winning the right to vote on September 19, 1893, becoming the first country in the world to do so.
The Prime Minister said: "It's a huge honour to be asked to guest edit the Suffrage 125 anniversary edition of the New Zealand Herald. It's an assignment I'm approaching with a great sense of responsibility."
Herald Premium Content Editor Miriyana Alexander said the Prime Minister was a fitting Guest Editor for the occasion. The pair have begun planning the edition, and Alexander said Ardern was full of great story ideas.
