Labour is going back to the Electoral Commission about John Key's pre-election RadioLive show, saying the Prime Minister was more involved in it than he let on.

Labour's deputy leader, Grant Robertson, yesterday released emails showing Mr Key had chosen and approached his own guests and his office had changed a "brief" about the show and provided the wording for RadioLive to request advice from the Electoral Commission about it.

In the emails Mr Key's communications manager, Willy Trolove, also wrote that Electoral Commission advice had not given a definitive go-ahead for the show, but made it clear the responsibility was on the broadcaster, "which is useful".
