Winston Peters totally rules out coalition with Labour (NewstalkZB)

Winston Peters smiling

Newstalk ZB, Summarised by Centrist

There is scepticism whether one can count on Winston Peters living up to his commitment that  his NZ First party will not agree to form any sort of arrangement with Labour to form the next government. Peters has signalled he wouldn’t in the past, but there’s a lot of doubt about his sincerity on the issue, because he is seen as having flip-flopped on important commitments before. 

In an interview with Heather Du Plessis-Allan, who herself has doubts whether Peters can be trusted, Peters emphasises “I will not form a coalition government or a confidence and supply agreement with the Labour Party. Period. Full stop. End of story.”
