Labour has held a ballot and elected a Cabinet. It's pretty much as you'd expect - Lianne Dalziel will be back, and Nanaia Mahuta has gained a cabinet post as a reward for her loyalty. David Parker and Clayton Cosgrove have also made it in ahead of a slate of associate ministers such as Dover Samuels, Harry Duynhoven, and Taito Phillip Field - though as associate positions are appointed seperately, some may be reappointed. The big surprise was Jim Sutton deciding not to stand - I guess he'd rather focus on his electorate. Meanwhile, the farmers who de-elected him but yet insisted that he remain as Minister of Trade Negotiations to serve their interests may want to rethink their strategy a bit.
No news on portfolios yet; that will likely have to wait until Wednesday.
