Who will Winston Peters go with? - Political analysis

From Morning Report, 8:19 am on 29 September 2017

It's been almost a week since the election; New Zealand is waiting for the special votes to be counted, and for Winston Peters to decide who he will go into coalition with.

Trend data from Google New Zealand shows searches for 'who will Winston Peters go with' spiked by 3,500 percent in New Zealand in the immediate aftermath of the election. As for who Mr Peters will ultimately go with - that's a question that not even Google can answer.

Former unionist and director at Piko Consulting Stephanie Rodgers, former National press secretary Ben Thomas, and law lecturer Khylee Quince join us to discuss the week in politics.
