Portfolio responsibilities will be confirmed at a later date, likely next week.

Party leader James Shaw said his party ministers would "work hard alongside our team and the rest of the Labour-led government to ensure we make a positive contribution to the lives of New Zealanders by addressing our priority areas of climate change, clean water, and ending poverty".

The Green Party co-leader fronted media late last night, saying his party had confirmed its confidence and supply agreement with Labour.
