New Zealand First leader Winston Peters will be named as Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of New Zealand when the final Cabinet line‑up is revealed later this week.

It's business time for Jacinda Ardern, who is set to be sworn in as Prime Minister on Thursday, as she finalises deals with Labour's governing partners and reveals her ministerial line‑up this week.

The clock has also started ticking on Labour's ambitious plan for its first 100 days in office, which includes an array of law changes across several portfolios.

Labour will sign off its policy agreements with the Greens and New Zealand First this afternoon, after which the contents will be made public.

Some of details of the Greens deal have already been released, including a guarantee for a public referendum on legalising cannabis.
