New Zealand First has announced the party will hold post-election "preliminary" coalition discussions in Wellington with the National Party tomorrow morning.
The Labour Party's opportunity will come tomorrow also, but in the afternoon.
The Winston Peters-led party holds the balance of power following last month's vote.
Mr Peters has been completely tight-lipped to the media since the September 23 election in providing any detail which major party New Zealand First might side with in forming a coalition government.
The only detail Mr Peters has given is setting a deadline of next Thursday, October 12, for a coalition government to be formed.
Mr Peters has been consistent that serious coalition negotiations cannot begin before all the 380,000 special votes from the election are counted.
