New Zealand First has announced the party will hold post-election "preliminary" coalition discussions in Wellington with the National Party tomorrow morning.

History has shown Winston Peters knows all too well the importance of coalition phone calls.

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.

The NZ First leader is in hot demand as the country waits to find out the make-up of the next government.
