Dr Ghazarian can discuss:

  • The impact of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's leadership in the aftermath of the Christchurch shootings

  • The impact of COVID-19 on the election result

  • What the result means for Australian politics

The following can be attributed to Dr Ghazarian:

“As Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern had to lead the country through difficult periods. Her performance in the aftermath of the Christchurch shootings, and her government's approach to COVID-19 will be among the prominent issues voters consider as they cast their ballots.”
