Helen Clark announces details of her Centre-Right
Government.
Scoop Audio & Images: Prime Minister Helen Clark has announced that 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.

  • COMMENTARY:

    Marc Alexander Casts A Former MPs Eye Over Coalition Formation - Nothing in politics is so simple that it can't be misunderstood. The closed-door coalition shuffle is mercifully at an end. And did it take its time! We had an election over a month ago and we got what we least expected: a result that should have come with the instruction 'some assembly required'. See… Marc Alexander: A Government at Last! Yeah Right

    Scoop Image:
Russell Brown. Russell Brown & More From Public Address - There are some angry Greens over on Frogblog. In the heat of the moment, some of them seem inclined to turn on their leaders and go hostile on the Left: to do an Alliance, in other words. I don't think that would be too smart. On the face of it - and according to all the news reports - the Greens don't get a lot in hard terms. But they didn't ask for a lot. They made a virtue of going into negotiation without an array of bottom lines, and the agreement they now have, for no promise of support on confidence and supply (just a promise not to vote against the government), is the same one they had already negotiated in return for their active support of a Labour-led government.

    Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

    It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
