New government to be announced today


We will know the make-up of our new government by the end of the day.

Winston Peters has confirmed he will announce his final decision regarding coalition partners later this afternoon.

This likely marks the NZ First leaders final time acting as 'kingmaker' to the two major political parties.

Mr Peters previously stated that we would know our new government by Thursday October 12, but negotiations extended a full week longer than expected. 

Political commentators Trish Sherson and Chris Trotter join the AM show to discuss their predictions for Winston's choice, what that means for the losing party, and if NZ First can survive without their long time leader.  

The AM Show with Duncan Garner, Amanda Gillies and Mark Richardson, weekdays 6-9am on RadioLIVE and streaming live to the ROVA app on Android and iPhone.
