New Zealand's freshly minted opposition leader Christopher Luxon has named his shadow cabinet, demoting former leader Judith Collins from the front bench.
However, another ex-leader has announced his political return, with Todd Muller axing plans to retire, claiming a "reinvigoration" under Mr Luxon's leadership.
The former Air New Zealand boss takes the wheel with his National party facing a popularity gulf to Jacinda Ardern's Labour-led government.
"There is a huge desire to turn the page. Not just a desire, it's happening ... our MPs are feeling pretty energised," he said.
He will face off in question time on Tuesday against Ms Ardern who drew attention to the turnover in leaders when asked of Mr Luxon's ascension.
"I wish the new leader of the opposition well. I don't imagine its easy to manage a caucus where you have three past leaders within it," she said.
"I've treated every opposition leader exactly the same and I'll continue to do."
Mr Luxon stood alongside new deputy Nicola Willis in parliament on Monday to reveal his new-look line-up of MPs and, as is customary in Kiwi politics, their rankings.
Ms Collins, a polarising conservative who lost the leadership last month, slid to No.19. just inside the shadow cabinet, with the low-profile science and research portfolio.
Mr Muller is unranked outside the cabinet, with fisheries.
The big movers up the rankings are all next-gen MPs: Erica Stanford is at No.7, adding education after a highly-regarded stint in immigration, well-liked whip Matt Doocey soars to No.8, while 30-year-old Simeon Brown is at No.9.
Other winners include COVID-19 spokesman Chris Bishop, who rises to No.4, next to beaten leadership aspirant Simon Bridges, the finance spokesman at No.3.
Mr Bridges, leader from 2018 to 2020, withdrew from the leadership contest an hour before a vote after a meeting with Mr Luxon, saying he would be a "brilliant" leader.
