New Zealand First leader Winston Peters says Pita Sharples is the wrong person to lead a constitutional review.

Dr Sharples and deputy Prime Minister Bill English will head the review which includes the electoral system, Maori seats, the term of parliament and the status of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Mr Peters is urging New Zealanders to boycott the review.

He told Waatea News that New Zealand's unwritten constitution has serves its citizens well.
