sworn in as New Zealand's first wahine Māori Governor-General
Dame Cindy Kiro has been sworn in as New Zealand's next Governor-General at a ceremony at Parliament.
The event, which is the most significant State event since the opening of Parliament last November following the general election, sees Dame Cindy become New Zealand's first wahine Māori Governor-General.
Dame Cindy and the Prime Minister entered Parliament's legislative chamber side-by-side ahead of the ceremony.
After waiata, a commission from Queen Elizabeth II was read out in both English and te reo Māori, appointing Dame Cindy as the Governor-General in New Zealand.
