It comes after a fiery day on the campaign trail yesterday.

Ardern again ruled out a wealth tax, calling claims by National that it would go ahead under a Labour-Greens coalition a "desperate tactic".

Meanwhile, Collins urged the public to vote for her party, saying others were "miserable" and lacked optimism.

More than 1.4 million people have already voted.

The debate, moderated by Jessica Mutch McKay, will air tonight on TVNZ1 at 7pm, as well as live at 1 NEWS online and Facebook.
