NZ First Party Leader, and Foreign Affairs Minister in waiting, Winston Peters held a press conference this evening immediately following the Prime Minister's announcement of the new Government. He faced questioning on a range of issues relating to his enhanced confidence and supply agreement with the Labour Progressive government, and notably took some exception to media questions around whether or not he asked for, or was offered, a ministerial position.
