N Zealand ‘king­maker’ re­neges on dead­line

The Phnom Penh Post - - WORLD -

NEW Zealand’s pop­ulist “king­maker” Win­ston Peters says he will not meet a self­im­posed dead­line of Thursday to an­nounce an end to the coun­try’s elec­tion dead­lock. Peters has been in talks with Prime Min­is­ter Bill English and op­po­si­tion Labour leader Jacinda Ardern all week about form­ing a coali­tion to form gov­ern­ment. Asked when an an­nounce­ment would be made, he told re­porters: “Not on Thursday night, no. The an­swer is as soon as pos­si­ble after Thursday night.”
