Labour has confirmed it will work with Winston Peters if he gets back into parliament.
Phil Goff says no one in caucus asked him to rule out working with the New Zealand First leader Winston Peters, should he be returned to Parliament.
Mr Goff says the caucus is unanimous in its position on any post-election coalition deals.
Labour will make its decisions after the election in November on the basis of compatibility and policies that it wants to pursue for all New Zealanders.
In other words if you vote for Labour you’re voting for a pig in a poke and will get whatever deal the party needs to cobble together to get into government.
This gives the power to the politicians.
National, by contrast, has given the power to the people.
John Key has ruled out working with Peters so voters know where they stand – they can have a National-led government without him or a Labour-led one with him.
