Green Party co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons has made a clear pitch for a Labour-Greens coalition at the party's campaign launch in Auckland.
The call follows a warming between the two parties in recent weeks.
Fitzsimons says a Labour-Greens coalition would enable Labour to avoid working with New Zealand First, a party she describes as divisive and erratic.
She says there are policy areas the Greens and Labour can agree to disagree on, such as free trade agreements.
In a new policy announced at the launch, the Greens are suggesting annual health checks for all New Zealanders should be free.
