From Morning Report, 6:10 am on 24 November 2023

The National Party leader, Christopher Luxon, last night confirmed to the Governor-general that the three parties will be able to form a government - just shy of six weeks after the October election.

Details of the coalition agreement will be released and we'll find out who has what ministerial portfolio.

On Thursday, Christopher Luxon remained tight-lipped on the details - including who will be his deputy, and whether there'll be a referendum on the Treaty of Waitangi.
