New Zealand PM pays glowing tribute to Benazir Bhutto in Harvard

New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern has used her Harvard University Commencement address to speak out against the “scourge of disinformation” and echo former Pakistan prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s call to deepen democracy.

Ms Ardern was honoured by the storied US university on Thursday when she addressed more than a thousand students from the same stage offered to leaders of nations and industry including Winston Churchill, Angela Merkel, Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.

She received a rapturous reception as she spoke of New Zealand’s gun law reform and abortion decriminalisation – two hot-button issues in the United States.
