Frontbench team of David Cunliffe

David Cunliffe announced his first frontbench team on 23 September 2013, a week after he was elected Leader of the Labour Party. Following the April 2014 resignation of senior MP Shane Jones, Cunliffe reshuffled his Shadow Ministry on 6 May.[1][2] Cunliffe ranks his top 25 MPs, with the remainder listed alphabetically. MPs who have announced they will not contest the next general election are listed last.

As the Labour Party forms the largest party not in government, this frontbench team is as a result the Official Opposition of the New Zealand House of Representatives.
