The Rotorua Daily Post took to the streets to get locals' thoughts on the coalition between NZ First and Labour.
I would have preferred a National and Green coalition but it is a democracy and that's the way it should be. All the best wishes to the new government.
FRED KREUTMAYER, 56
I'm happy with the decision and glad that Winston finally made it.
NGAHUIA PITA, 46
It took Winston until the last minute but I'm pretty happy with it. I'm sure he's exhausted now.
CASSANDRA ELDER, 29
I voted for Labour so I'm quite happy with the decision. I'm just sad to see the Maori Party won't be part of the government.
