'There are clues': Leaks are rife from post-election talks, according to expert

Prime Minister elect Chris Luxon has wanted talks to stay private.

But Ben Thomas says that hasn't been the case.

"There's the question of how Winston Peters is going to kind of conduct himself as part of this trio, and maybe part of that is distancing himself from the other two."
