The final results for the End of Life Choice Bill and the Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill - which will include the special votes - will be available next Friday.

Special votes include post-in votes, votes from overseas and votes made after the writ day on September 13, 2020.

It comes as discussions are expected to wrap up today between the Labour and Green Party over the formation of the next Government.

Green co-leader Marama Davidson and James Shaw will then enter discussions with the rest of their party over any potential deal, with the party needing 75 per cent support for it to go ahead.

An announcement is expected to be made on Sunday.
