Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed the resignation this afternoon. His departure follows a series of claims from complainants that contradicted Haworth and his handling of the complaints.

Jacinda Ardern and party president Nigel Haworth unveiled a number of measures the party was taking, two days after it emerged four 16-year-olds were sexually harassed or assaulted by a 20-year-old at a Young Labour camp.
