New Zealand First Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters said he had spoken to the leaders of the National Party and the Labour Party today and, amongst other matters, advised them of that.

What you need to know

It's been 26 days since the election.

NZ is into the 10th day of negotiations.

On Tuesday night Mr Peters secretly met one-on-one with both Bill English and Jacinda Ardern.

Mr Peters told media yesterday that the board almost reached a consensus on policy but hasn't discussed the form of the next Government or which party they'd side with.

It's understood the policy document will be taken back to Labour and National before roles and Government formation is discussed. The board will then need to reach a consensus on the final agreement.
