NZ First leader Winston Peters says he still hasn't come to any kind of decision ahead of his final talks with National and Labour scheduled for this afternoon and evening respectively.
Mr Peters wants his board to take the same "open minded" approach as him when they meet to thrash out a final decision, having said today that members will most likely not meet before Saturday.
"I said I would go into it with a totally open mind and I've asked my board and caucus to take the same approach," Mr Peters said.
Initially a decision was due to be made today, but due to the 'logistics' of getting his board members together, it seems no decision will be made until the weekend at the earliest.
Labour leader Jacinda Ardern came out of the latest talks saying a "robust process" had been followed.
"It has been an important process we need to make sure we are making a considered decision about the future of New Zealand," she said.
The board of NZ First, which could help determine New Zealand's next government, has been revealed by Radio New Zealand.
The NZ First Board as of July 18, 2017 consists of:
Leader: Winston Peters
Deputy leader: Ron Mark
President: Brent Catchpole
Vice president North Island: Julian Paul
Vice president South Island: John Thorn
Tresurer: Holly Hopkinson
