New Govt: Peters & Dunne Ministers, Greens Out
NEWSFLASH: Labour-Led Govt - Peters And Dunne Ministers Outside Cabinet
New Zealand First leader Winston Peters and United Future leader Peter Dunne have been allocated ministerial positions in a Labour-led Government. Labour has successfully negotiated a Centre-Right deal that offers immediate assurance that it can govern with New Zealand First and the United Party having signed confidence and supply agreements.
The Progressive Party will be inside a coalition with Labour, and the Green Party has committed to support the government during confidence and supply votes but misses out on having a role inside the executive.
Winston Peters picks up Minister of Foreign Affairs, Minister for Racing, and Associate Minister for Senior Citizens. Peter Dunne will be Minister of Revenue and Associate Minister of Health.
