Andrew Little has been elected the new Labour Party’s leader.
Little is a former Engineering, Printing and Manufacturing Union’s national secretary.
He won the leadership by a narrow margin from Wellington Central MP Grant Robertson.
In the end, it was substantial support from Labour’s unions which gave Mr Little the votes he needed to win the leadership.
But at a news conference to announce his win, Mr Little said he would spend the next few days talking to fellow MPs before determining what roles they would have.
Mr Little thanked the other leadership contenders and said there was a clear place for all three to hold senior leadership roles in the party.
He said Labour had to start talking about the issues which mattered to people. That was mainly about their jobs and incomes, and how they could get a job if they did not have one.
