Five weeks on from the election and two weeks since the final vote was confirmed, coalition talks between National, ACT and New Zealand First are still in progress.

Incoming Prime Minister Christopher Luxon and NZ First leader Winston Peters met briefly in Auckland over the weekend.

ACT leader David Seymour also met with Mr Peters, but there are no signs yet of any agreement between the parties.

Unionist and political commentator Shane Te Pou, and media trainer and former National Party press secretary Janet Wilson spoke to Corin Dann.
