NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 29/09/2016

The Green Party has announced a portfolio reshuffle as it fits newcomer Barry Coates into the pack.

Julie Anne Genter has lost finance but picked up health, the portfolio vacated by Kevin Hague.

She keeps transport and becomes associate finance spokeswoman.

Co-leader James Shaw is taking finance and Mojo Mathers has been given conservation, previously held by Mr Hague.

Mr Coates, who will arrive on October 10, will take on trade, overseas aid, commerce, consumer and internal affairs.

He's a former Oxfam New Zealand chief executive.
