Labour line-up to take the 2017 election

Opposition Leader Andrew Little has today announced a strong and talented shadow Cabinet to take Labour into the 2017 election.

“Labour had an impressive intake of fresh faces after last year’s election and newest MPs have now had a year to show what they’re made of.

“This reshuffle rewards hard work and continues my drive to renew our Caucus line up.

“Kelvin Davis moves up after he shone the spotlight on Serco scandals and the treatment of detainees in Australia. He will now take on Māori Development.

“Megan Woods joins the front bench in recognition of the important work she is leading in Canterbury and on climate change.

“Newer faces Jenny Salesa and Peeni Henare move into the Shadow Cabinet, along with Meka Whaitiri who takes on local government.

“High profile MP Jacinda Ardern moves up along with Phil Twyford who adds Auckland Issues to his bow.

“Stuart Nash moves into the Shadow Cabinet and picks up Police. Her tireless campaigning on paid parental leave sees Sue Moroney promoted.

“Today’s reshuffle is a strong mix of new talent and experience – and builds a solid team to win in 2017,” Andrew Little says.
