Winston Peters doesn't need the support of all Kiwis to get back into Parliament.

He told supporters New Zealand First will be back come 2023 at the party's annual meeting in East Auckland yesterday.

Peters spoke about the increasing use of the name 'Aotearoa' over 'New Zealand' in his speech.

Former National and ACT Party leader Don Brash told Kate Hawkesby he believes Peters is in with a chance of getting five percent of the vote.

"There are a lot of people who do resent that language issue. Yes, he'll offend younger voters or dismiss it anyway."

Brash also said that Peters' age won't matter, especially when compared to US President Joe Biden, who is 78, the age Peters will be in 2023.
