RESHUFFLE: New Labour leader Andrew Little.

Labour leader Andrew Little has announced his caucus line-up - with Annette King as deputy leader for the coming year and Grant Robertson as finance spokesman.

Former party leader David Cunliffe has been relegated to the back benches as Little attempted to extend an olive branch to Robertson's camp in the caucus. Cunliffe dropped to 14 on the caucus rank, while Robertson sits at three.

And calls continue to come for State Services Commissioner Iain Rennie to be dumped over his handling of former Cera chief executive Roger Sutton - but Prime Minister John Key and State Services Minister Paula Bennett maintain they have confidence in the top public servant.
