Greens still keen on agreement with National

11:25 am on 6 December 2011

The Green Party says it still wants to negotiate an agreement with the National Party despite opposing its education and welfare policies.

The two parties had a memorandum of understanding in the last term of Parliament, and a Radio New Zealand political reporter says it's likely a similar deal will be struck again.

Co-leader Metiria Turei says it's going to be even more difficult to find common ground as the Government moves further to the right.

But she says the Greens do want to continue working with National on areas like the insulation scheme and the national cycleway.
