Dunne, Lotu-liga sworn in
Two new ministers have been sworn in at Parliament on Tuesday.
United Future leader Peter Dunne has been formally reinstated as a minister after resigning his ministerial posts last year when he refused to fully cooperate with an inquiry into who leaked a report into the Government's spy agency.
Mr Dunne is now Minister of Internal Affairs, Associate Minister of Health and Associate Minister of Conservation.
National's Peseta Sam Lotu-liga has been appointed Minister of Pacific Island Affairs and Associate Minister of Local Government.
Mr Lotu-liga, who was born in Samoa, is the third MP of Pacific Island descent to become a minister.
