How Old Simon Bridges Is
Simon Bridges has just been made the new leader of the National party in New Zealand. First elected to Parliament in 2008, Simon Bridges is the MP for Tauranga and is the National party’s first Maori leader. Of course, with Bridges taking a fairly significant position in New Zealand politics, many people are likely wondering exactly how old the new party leader is.
Born in October 1976 in Auckland, New Zealand, Simon Bridges is currently 41 years old, making him just a few years older than New Zealand’s current Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
Simon Bridges will run in New Zealand’s 2020 General Election against Ardern, with Paula Bennett staying on as deputy leader of the National party.
So why is everyone making a big deal about Bridges? Well, it’s probably got something to do with his strong accent, something that’s been deemed “fantastic” by some, and mocked by others. There’s also the small matter of his status as the National party’s first Maori leader, though this is something Bridges rarely makes a big deal of himself.
