    A u-turn from one of the National Party's senior politicians

    A u-turn from one of the National Party's senior politicians


    Amy Adams was set to retire at the election but now she's accepted the Covid-19 Recovery portfolio from new Opposition leader Todd Muller.

    Adams says the portfolio is about making sure all parts of the recovery machine are pulling in a consistent direction.

    She says while the recovery is about getting our economy strong, getting New Zealanders in jobs and getting small business going - there's more to it.

    Todd Muller will look after the Small Business and National Security portfolios, and deputy Nikki Kaye keeps Education, and Sport and Recreation.

    And Judith Collins has a swag of new roles: Economic and Regional Development, Pike River Re-entry, and Shadow Attorney-General.
