New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern unveiled what she called an “incredibly diverse” cabinet on Monday, as she promised to prioritise economic recovery in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Al Jazeera reports that former Finance Minister Grant Robertson was named deputy prime minister, the first openly gay person to hold the position, while women and the Maori community were also strongly represented in the 20-member cabinet, including new Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta, who has a “moko kauae” – a traditional Maori tattoo on her chin. While expressing pride at her cabinet’s diversity, Ardern also made a point of saying that the appointments were made on merit.
