A tussle appears to be playing out over who will be the next Deputy Prime Minister.
National, ACT and New Zealand First have struck policy deals and are now discussing ministerial positions.
David Seymour seemed to be pitching for deputy today, citing ACT's bigger share of votes above NZ First.
Political Editor Jason Walls says it was a curious ploy.
"The only political story at the moment is that issue. He knows that if he says something, we're all going to report it and that's going to get back to Luxon."
