New Zealand First leader Winston Peters is calling on his party to prepare for a possible early election.

New Zealand First, which is not currently represented in Parliament, is holding its annual convention in Christchurch this weekend.

Mr Peters says that what he calls the unholy alliance of National, ACT and the Maori Party is not going to last, and that the cracks are already showing.

He says there is still a place in the political spectrum for New Zealand First.
