Imran Khan, Jacinda Ardern among Time’s 100 most influential people of 2019


Prime Minister Imran Khan and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern have been named among the ‘100 Most Influential People’ of 2019 by Time magazine.

The list has chosen the “influential people” under four categories: leaders, pioneers, artists, icons and titans.

Among the other leaders on the list are US President Donald Trump, Pope Francis, American Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Bin Mohamad, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director who headed the two-year Russia election meddling probe, also made it to the list as a ‘leader’. A redacted version of the report into the investigation — which had cast a cloud over Donald Trump’s presidency — is expected to be released on Thursday.
