New Zealand First leader Winston Peters is due to arrive in the capital Thursday - heightening expectations a coalition deal could be sealed.

National's Christopher Luxon and ACT's David Seymour are already in Wellington - both have expressed hope a deal to form a government could be closed soon.

Leaving Auckland Airport on his way to the capital, Peters had little to say to waiting reporters.

Political reporter Gyles Dexter spoke to Charlotte Cook.
