Fearless, even if it is not spring, it is full of spring.
The fearless Clark ushered in not spring, but the crown of the greatest new Zealander.

After that, he successively served as the Minister of housing, the Minister of resource protection, the Minister of health, the Minister of labor and the Deputy Prime Minister of the New Zealand government.
In November 1999, Clark became the first female prime minister in New Zealand’s history.
She has been re elected since then.
She has also served as Minister of art, culture and heritage, Minister of administrative services, Minister of security intelligence and Minister of communication security. Ms. Helen Clark, who is about to return from her vacation, accepted the last gift from her friends: a warm 60th birthday party.
In the evening, she will board the plane to New York.
In the private party attended by 120 people, there were Phil Goff, the leader of the labor party, the MP of the labor party, the supporters of the Labor Party and her friends.
The party was also attended by a famous Russian band, New Zealand singers, famous filmmakers and so on.
For Helen, it was a very busy holiday.
All her trips were exposed to the media from the moment she returned home.
Perhaps, as a public figure, this can not be avoided.
The party was held at the home of former colleague Chris Carter.
Helen and her husband Peter Davis, dressed in relaxed casual clothes, appeared at the party on time and accepted the blessings of friends with a smile.
Helen Clark had a relaxed smile on her face and said she enjoyed spending time with her friends.
He also expressed his consistent support for the Labor Party and his trust in this team.
At the same time, she was very satisfied with her vacation, visited many relatives and participated in various activities.
As time went by, the singer sang with a nightingale like voice, and the band played the song “Happy Birthday to you”.
The guests hummed along with the music.
At that moment, Helen Clark’s face showed moving and nostalgia.
At this moment, it is a rare and wonderful private moment for Helen Clark. 1. Clark’s legendary life.
New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark can arouse strong interest in the media wherever she goes.
She always carries two big black bags herself, like a female teacher.
Also interested by the media is her academic husband Peter Davis.
Clark was born on February 26, 1950 in a wealthy farmer’s family in Milton, New Zealand.
She is the youngest of the four sisters.
When Clark was very young, her father sent her to a boarding school far away from home to let her live an independent life.
Clark later said that when she first entered boarding school, she saw her classmates very shy.
She was afraid to speak loudly and had little courage.
After a period of time, it seems to have changed a lot, especially the courage has grown, and I can still attend lectures in class.
Clark has been in boarding school until he graduated from high school, and successfully entered the University of Auckland with good grades.
At the University of Auckland, Clark studied political science and literature.
After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in political science here, he began to study for a master of Arts and obtained a degree.
Because of his excellent grades, Clark was left to teach at the University of Auckland for eight years.
Clark began to enter politics as a lecturer.
Clark had a special liking for politics for a long time and began to enter politics when he was a lecturer at the University of Auckland.
Although Clark’s father is conservative and does not agree with her daughter’s politics, Clark has made up her mind to go into politics.
Despite her father’s opposition, she is determined to realize her political dream.
Her father held a right-wing view and supported the Vietnam War.
Her view was contrary to her father.
For this reason, she even had a big quarrel with her father, and then rushed to the street to participate in the march against the Vietnam War.
As early as the 1960s and 1970s, she began to actively participate in various political activities.
When she was in middle school, she often participated in New Zealand people’s demonstrations against the American invasion of Vietnam and the establishment of foreign military bases in New Zealand.
Subsequently, Clark also played a leading role in some civil mass organizations against Apartheid in South Africa.
As Clark’s actions and political views coincided with the political views of the New Zealand Labour Party, she was soon favored by the New Zealand Labour Party.
After entering the labor party, Clark worked very well and quickly became a senior general of the labor party.
Clark joined the Labor Party in 1971 and served as the Executive Committee of the Labor Party and chairman of the youth committee.
On behalf of the Labour Party, she participated in the socialist international and international women’s socialist conferences held in 1976, 1978, 1983 and 1986, the Asia Pacific socialist organization consultative talks held in Sydney in 1981 and the Socialist International Leadership Conference held in Sydney in 1991.
Clark spends a lot of time working hard for the New Zealand Labour Party.
From 1978 to September 1988, she served as an executive in New Zealand within her party and returned to the same post again from April 1989.
She has been the chairman of the labour Youth Council, the administrator of the Auckland Regional Committee of the Labour Party, the Secretary of the labour women’s Committee and a member of the Regulations Committee.
Since Clark entered Parliament in 1981, she often appeared in Parliament as an important member of the Labor Party in Parliament.
At that time, Clark was shining with talent and wisdom.
In parliament, she is famous for her eloquence and sharp conversation.
Those non Labour MPs are most afraid of the young Congresswoman because they always seem vulnerable in the confrontation with Clark.
Within the labor party, Clark is also famous for being bold and daring to tell the truth.
She has never been merciless for some acts of corruption and bending the law that harm the interests of the country and the people.
Because of this, the Labor Party led by her can win the support of the general public, so that the Labor Party has established a high prestige among the people.
Clark played an important role in the government led by Lonnie Douglas.
1A woman elected to Congress.
During her first term of office (1981-1984), she became a member of the regulatory amendment Committee.
In her second term of office (1984-1987), she presided over the Select Committee on foreign affairs, disarmament and military control, which was later merged with the defense committee into a single Committee in 1985.
Clark served in a cabinet composed of Labor Party David Lange, Jeffrey Palmer and Mike Moore, first the Minister of housing and resource protection, then the Minister of health, and then the Deputy Prime Minister.
She became the leader of the opposition in the 1990s when the national party was run by Jim Bogle and Jenny spree.
Clark served as secretary of the Department of resource conservation from August 1987 to January 1989.
She was the Minister of housing from August 1987 to August 1989.
She became Minister of health in January 1989 and Minister of labor and vice premier of the state in August of the same year.
She presided over the Social Equality Committee and was also a member of the cabinet policy committee, the cabinet administrative committee, the cabinet economic development and employment Committee, the cabinet Expenditure Review Committee, the cabinet state organs Committee, the cabinet honours and travel Committee and the cabinet domestic and foreign security committee.
From October 1990 to December 1993, Clark was the leader assistant of the opposition, the opposition spokesman of the Ministry of health and the Ministry of labor, and a member of the Special Committee on social services and the Special Committee on labor.
Clark became the leader of the opposition on December 1, 1993.
When the New Zealand Labour Party became the ruling party in 1999, Clark became New Zealand’s second female prime minister and the first woman to win power in one election.
The former female prime minister, Jenny spree, came to power after the mid-term Party leadership dispute.
Prior to the 2005 general election, Clark was also the prime minister and Minister of the Ministry of Arts, culture and historical heritage, and was responsible for the security intelligence service of New Zealand and the services of various national departments.
Her terms of reference include social policy and international affairs.
As the leader of the Labour Party, she successfully formed a government with the minority party of the Coalition Party (1999).
This cooperation with the coalition party collapsed in 2002, leading to early elections and a coalition with the Reform Party led by Jim Anderson (in 2002, it received parliamentary support and confidence from the United future party and the “goodwill” of the green party).
After the adjustment of the cabinet and the coalition of the New Zealand party, the New Zealand party won the confidence and support of the ruling party in 2005. 3. Clark was re elected as New Zealand’s Prime Minister for three terms.
Since New Zealand introduced the German style quota distribution system in 1996, it is more difficult for a political party to win a parliamentary majority alone.
For Clark, re-election is not a problem, so she resolutely takes advantage of her high support rate and would rather take a risk with an early election.
The media have predicted that she may not win the majority, but lead to the emergence of an unstable coalition government.
However, Clark “divorced” from the green party, which has been in power for more than two years, and turned to hand in hand with the Progressive Alliance Party to make a bet.
Whatever the outcome of the election, this political adventure is enough to illustrate Clark’s ambition – she is gradually rewriting the history of the “men’s Club” in New Zealand politics.
“I’m proud to lead the first government in 30 years to keep its promise to voters.
So I think we can lead New Zealand again,” said confident Clark in Auckland, the country’s largest city The former lecturer in political science has been in politics since 1981.
From the beginning, he has won the title of “emotional scholar” with his workaholic style.
She has an amazing ability to quote countless facts and data when debating with others, so that others call her “minister in charge of everything”.
Australian political analyst McKinley commented: “Clark is the kind of awe inspiring politician.
” In the international political circle, her unique and charming style has also attracted the attention of many media.
For decades in politics, Clark has often been subjected to various comments and attacks.
For all kinds of accusations, she has only one response: those who achieve great things are informal.
New Zealand’s largest opposition National Party portrays Clark as a woman with a strong desire for power, accusing her of always trying to firmly control every territory in the government.
Clark retorted and denounced the national party for making rumors and fabricating sex scandals related to her.
“What I hate most is the national party.
They are all annoying guys,” she said in an authorized biography On July 28, 2002, the official results of the New Zealand parliamentary election were announced.
The New Zealand Labour Party led by Prime Minister Clark won 52 seats in the 120 seats of Parliament.
Clark became the first female prime minister to win re-election in New Zealand’s history.
Half a month later, Clark united with the Progressive Alliance Party to form a new coalition government.
Clark once said in the article that she became a professional politician, first of all out of nature, but also closely related to the loose political and cultural atmosphere in New Zealand.
She never had to hide her political ideas and ideals, and rarely felt the prejudice and obstacles to women in politics.
On the contrary, because of her gender, she has gained more understanding and support from voters and colleagues.
However, in New Zealand politics, women do not receive special “care”.
Any “care” will be disgusted by them.
In one election campaign, a leader of the opposition party once said that because of Clark’s gender, he could only be “courteous” in the debate.
Hearing this, Clark immediately responded that New Zealand women are equal to men in politics.
The so-called “comity” is not respect for women.
Under Clark’s leadership, New Zealand has formulated a bold foreign policy, as evidenced by maintaining a nuclear free state (perhaps at the cost of a free trade agreement with the United States) and refusing to join the invasion of Iraq without the approval of the United Nations.
In 2000, Chris cartel, a Labour Party congressman, investigated the background of one of her cabinet colleagues, m ā ori affairs minister Doyle Samuels.
The cartel left a message on Peter jellich’s message machine asking for information about Samuel.
When the message on the message machine is in the mediaIn March 2001, Peter was accused of sending an email to Clark’s senior private secretary asking for his friend to be promoted to an official in the health department.
When the media caught the news, they naturally refused to let go easily, and even accused Peter of taking the “back door” of the prime minister’s office.
In the face of the accusation, Clark was very angry.
She thought her husband was a scholar and he could not have any political conspiracy.
Some people were maliciously slandering her family.
Her secretary also came forward to clarify that she asked Peter to recommend a candidate.
Clark works in the capital Wellington every day, while the house she and her husband live in is in Auckland in the north.
Her house is located in an ordinary residential area, close to the road and without guards.
Her house in Auckland is often thrown wine bottles and eggs by opponents.
Others like to play tricks on Prime Minister Clark.
Once, just before she was about to be re elected, someone exposed Clark’s fishing for fame, saying that she ordered her subordinates to paint for her, then signed her name and donated it to charity for auction.
As soon as the matter spread, it immediately caused a uproar in the media, and her political opponents applauded.
Clark held his breath and didn’t know that one of her subordinates did it behind her back until the relevant departments investigated it.
At the same time, Clark is also a woman with a lot of personality.
After marrying Peter Davis, according to Western tradition, women should take their husband’s surname, but she didn’t do so and kept her original surname.
Clark hasn’t had children for her favorite career.
Out of love for his wife, her husband Peter is happy to do the same.
Clark not only has his own successful career, but also has his own hobbies.
She is a very enthusiastic fan.
She also loves mountaineering.
In 1991, Clarke climbed the Kilimanjaro peak, the highest peak in Africa, with an altitude of 5895 meters.
She described this as one of the most unforgettable experiences in her life.
In January 2001, she climbed the akongagua peak, the highest peak in South America at an altitude of 6000 meters.
She even declared: “one day, I will climb Mount Everest.
” Therefore, someone commented on Clark: “she is not only a person who always climbs the peak in her official career, but also a person who always climbs the peak in her life.
” Clark loves literature and art.
It’s amazing that such a serious and sharp female politician claims that her favorite novel is Garcia Marquez’s magic realism masterpiece “a hundred years of solitude”.
Her love of drama and music was reflected when she was Minister of art, culture and heritage.
She also loves sports and has a great passion for hiking and skiing.
Under Clark’s infection, her children and her husband often go alpine skiing.
Even after she became prime minister, she did not forget to take time to climb mountains in Africa and South America from time to time.
Clark calls himself a “greedy reader”.
Out of her love for drama, she even played the role of God in a fairy tale play.
She is after Hollywood star Tom Cruise.
When Tom Cruise came to New Zealand to film, she even went to the set to visit the crew in person and praised Tom Cruise as a kind, young and attractive man.
On another occasion, on a whim after watching a performance in Auckland, she even went backstage to fasten a skirt button for an actor she liked.
Clark, a strong woman in politics, is also a very enthusiastic fan.
In July 2004, in order to catch up with a football match between New Zealand and Australia, Clark’s team did not hesitate to exceed the speed limit, which once reached 200 kilometers per hour.
As a result, it was strongly criticized by the domestic opposition.
The most well-known incident occurred in 2004, when the police, diplomatic convoy and minister’s service personnel who were responsible for escorting her drove 172 km / h faster in the procession from Timaru to Christchurch airport to ensure that Clark could arrive in time and participate in the football game in Wellington.
As a result, some police and minister’s service personnel were convicted of driving violations.
Clark excused herself by saying she didn’t know the car was speeding, and she didn’t make any impact or decision on the decision.
However, when an eyewitness testified in court, Clark described that he was browsing the surrounding scenery and seemed to enjoy the journey at that time.
In 1999, a sex scandal involving Clark and Dover Samuel, New Zealand’s minister in charge of Maori affairs, made a lot of noise in New Zealand politics.
However, the long-standing Clark was unmoved.
She let the media hype, and finally withstood the test of the scandal with her innocence.
Afterwards, Clark severely accused that New Zealand’s politics was “Americanized”.
She was as willing to attack political enemies like the American political arena.
She denounced the opposition party “dirty” with a consistent forthright style.
As the election approaches in New Zealand, Clark’s makeup will begin.
Clark, dressed up by the opposition National Party’s sarcastic satire for “old Maiden”, will make her hair more fashionable and put on a bit of blush.
Her advisers always advise her to soften her image as a stern intellectual who seems to be very controlling.
However, no matter how disguised, the strong woman in New Zealand politics doesn’t seem to have changed much.
With her penetrating and stern eyes, Clark led the labor party to win the parliamentary election again on September 17, 2005 and won the priority of forming a new government.
This is Clark’s 10th election campaign in many years.
It’s also a front-line election.
Since 1999, when she first became prime minister, New Zealand has experienced the longest sustained economic growth in history – an annual economic growth rate of 5% from 1999 to 2004.
The meticulous Clark has become one of the most popular leaders in New Zealand’s history.
However, her second term was not entirely smooth, and her overconfident leadership style was also criticized.
The opposition National Party lashed out at the government’s mismanagement and its position on issues such as taxes.
Although the economic growth rate has exceeded 20% in the past five years, household income has increased by only 11%.
Those working-class workers feel that their lives have not changed, especially when the average salary in neighbouring Australia has increased by 30% in the same period.
At 20Before early May 2005, Clark’s center left political alliance had been far ahead in public opinion polls, but in May, when the government announced the cancellation of tax cuts, the situation began to change.
As the opposition National Party promised to cut personal income tax by NZ $3.
9 billion by 2008 once the election was won, Clark’s support for the Labour Party fell all the way, and the election suddenly became evenly matched.
But Clark still exudes confidence everywhere.
In the last few days, her labor party was only 6 percentage points ahead of the opposition National Party in the opinion poll.
Clark still said without hesitation: “we don’t need to worry.
There is no plan B, only plan a, only the plan I will discuss, and I have only one important point, that is, the best result will be obtained on September 17.
” On October 19, 2005, Clark won the general election as she wished.
Her labor party and the New Zealand progressive party formed a new government, and she became the Prime Minister of New Zealand again.
This is the third time she has been elected in a row.
She has made a new history in New Zealand.
The 2008 general election came as scheduled.
Clark dreamed of continuing the political myth he created and tried to seek a fourth term as prime minister.
In August 2008, an audit report of the Audit Office of New Zealand pointed out that in the 2005 general election, except the Progressive Party, other political parties were suspected of illegally using taxpayer funds for their publicity and advertising expenses during the general election.
The seriousness was also the two major political parties in New Zealand – the labor party and the national party.
On August 31, Clark issued an open letter to defend the funding source of the Labor Party’s election, which has since kicked off the 2008 election ahead of schedule.
As the two major political parties in New Zealand, the Labour Party and the National Party took turns to build momentum for their own political parties.
On September 12, Clark held a press conference in Wellington, announcing the dissolution of Parliament on October 3 and the general election on November 8.
In early September 2008, the extramarital affair scandal of Don brash, the leader of the New Zealand National Party, was exposed.
Brash has an affair with Diane foreman, the second leader of the right-wing group “Economic Roundtable” and a multimillionaire, and both have families.
The impact of this incident on the national party can be described as a magnitude-5 earthquake.
In the National Party, brash’s position was immediately questioned by many party members, and his position as the party leader was once lost.
The National Party is in turmoil over sex scandals.
But soon, the national party returned to the city.
On September 18, the investigation magazine broke the news that the husband of Labor Party leader and current Prime Minister Clark was gay.
The newspaper also published photos of his husband’s “abnormal” hug and kiss with another gay man, which seems to be conclusive.
Regardless of the glorious image of her strong woman, Clark could not bear to scold the National Party members as “shameless” and “dirty”.
The National Party is determined to regain the throne of the ruling party, and the labor party will continue its brilliant record.
In Congress, the attack and even abuse between the two parties also began.
Members of the two parties began a fierce confrontation around the scandal of the illegal use of election funds and the sexual scandal of the leaders of the two parties, which rose to personal insult and slander.
The small parties sandwiched between the two parties are suffering and annoyed by it.
Some small party members said that when members of both parties yelled at each other in Congress, Congress was like a vegetable market and could not hear what they were arguing about.
On the evening of November 8, 2008, according to the election results released by the New Zealand Election Commission, the National Party, the main opposition party led by John Key, defeated the labor party that had been in power for nine years and won the right to form a government in the parliamentary election held that day.
John? Ji will serve as Prime Minister of the new coalition government.
Labor leader Clark admitted that the labor party lost the election that night and congratulated the national party.
She also announced her resignation as leader of the labour party. 5. Clark was selected as the greatest new Zealander.
Clark joined the New Zealand Labour Party in 1971, served as a member of the National Executive Committee of the Labour Party since 1978, and served as the leader of the Labour Party from 1993 to November 2008.
In 1981, she was elected as a member of the New Zealand Parliament.
After that, she successively served as the Minister of housing, the Minister of resource protection, the Minister of health, the Minister of labor and the Deputy Prime Minister of the New Zealand government.
From November 1999 to November 2008, she served as Prime Minister of New Zealand.
She also served as Minister of art, culture and heritage, Minister of administrative services, Minister of security intelligence and Minister of communication security.
She is the longest serving woman in the New Zealand Parliament.
She is the third politician to win the annual peace prize of the Danish Peace Foundation.
She is an art lover.
After watching a performance, she even went backstage to fasten a skirt button for an actor.
She always likes to carry a big black bag in her hand and looks like a female teacher.
Her words were sharp, her work style was fierce and fierce, and she shouted “dirty”, “shameless” and “dirty” at the opposition party.
She has been said many times to be an angry “inflammable”.
She is the first female prime minister in New Zealand’s history to come to power through election, and has been elected Prime Minister for three consecutive times.
She is by far the longest serving Prime Minister of New Zealand.
She is the first female administrator of the United Nations Development Programme since its establishment in 1965.
Helen Clark has a good governance.
During her tenure as prime minister, she has made New Zealand experience the longest period of high economic growth in history.
The meticulous Clark has become one of the most popular leaders in New Zealand’s history.
In a July 2009 poll in New Zealand, former Prime Minister Clark was elected the greatest living new Zealander.
