Mr Morrison resigned as Liberal leader when he lost the May 21 election to Anthony Albanese.

In an interview with Daily Mail Australia during the election campaign, Mr Morrison said his best achievements have been ‘seeing Australia come through the pandemic’, doubling mental health funding, and countering China by building alliances within ASEAN, the Quad and AUKUS. 

Mr Morrison’s post came after Jacinda Ardern declared a ‘reset’ in relations between Australia and New Zealand while visiting Mr Albanese in Sydney.

Mr Albanese said he would consider her longstanding request to stop deporting criminals with Kiwi passports when they have lived in Australia for a long time.

The new Prime Minister said he sympathised with his ‘friend’ Jacinda Ardern’s view on the controversial immigration policy during a joint press conference.

Fellow Labor leader Ms Ardern, who clashed with Mr Morrison over the issue, said: ‘I do see this as an opportunity for a reset.’

On her last trip to Australia in 2020, Ms Ardern told Mr Morrison: ‘Do not deport your people and your problems’. 

Australia’s policy sees non-citizens who commit serious crimes deported even if they’ve spent most of their lives in Australia.

It has resulted in hundreds of criminals being shipped to New Zealand even if they have no ties to the country other than their Kiwi passport. 

About 2,000 New Zealanders were deported between 2014 and 2020. Most had lived in Australia since they were children. 

Ms Ardern has previously said the policy ‘unquestionably’ increases gang violence in New Zealand.
