From Morning Report, 7:53 am on 24 October 2017

Regional New Zealand featured as a battleground during the election campaign with New Zealand First and Labour both promising more development for communities outside the main centres. Speaking last night after Mr Peter's announced he was going with Labour, Jacinda Ardern indicated Mr Peters had expressed interest in a ministerial role that would include regional development. Local Government New Zealand president and Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull gives his reaction.
