NEW Zealand Prime Minister John Key has joined US President Barack Obama in declaring that he is ''not personally opposed'' to same-sex marriage.

Mr Key issued a statement on the issue after the US President said in a television interview that he believed gay couples should be allowed to marry.

While Mr Key said he had no personal objection to gay marriage, he said change was not on his government's agenda.

New Zealand currently allows same-sex civil unions, but there is a push for marriage equality.

New Zealand Labour leader David Shearers said he supported same-sex marriage ''in principle'' but would want to see the details of any proposed change before backing it.
