Greens 'unlikely' to back Labour-NZ First from outside the tent

Few expect the Greens to sign a deal with National, but leader James Shaw says there are potential roadblocks to a Labour-Greens-NZ First Government too.

NZ First is the larger of the two parties, and hasn't nailed its colours to the mast like the Greens, who've openly backed Labour in their 'vote for change' campaign. It's arguable this puts NZ First in a stronger bargaining position when it comes to forming a coalition.

James Shaw told The AM Show on Monday. "We are in politics in order to make change."
