Election 2017: NZ First delays coalition announcement

From Morning Report, 6:39 am on 11 October 2017

It could be next week before the country finds out who will lead the next government. Winston Peters says he'll make a decision by tomorrow but won't be revealing his choice. He won't say whether an announcement will happen on Friday, or if he'll make any announcement by before the weekend. After a day of back-to-back meetings with both major parties, late last night after talks with National, Mr Peters told reporters there's a lot to go through before his decision is announced.
