Newshub's politics quiz: How many Members of Parliament can you name?

The Prime Minister has reshuffled her Cabinet of Ministers in Parliament, bringing some MPs into the spotlight while others remain "backbenchers". 

There are five parties represented in New Zealand's current 52nd Parliament: National, Labour, New Zealand First, the Greens and ACT. 

It's made up of MPs representing 64 general electorates and seven Māori ones. There are also 49 MPs selected from the party lists, which add up to a total of 120 MPs. 

While some MPs are high-profile like Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and leader of the National Party Simon Bridges, others aren't as well-known. 

In Thursday's Cabinet reshuffle, Labour's Kris Faafoi got a promotion. The now-Associate Housing Minister used to be what's called a Minister outside of Cabinet, but now he's been bumped up to the top rankings. 

But the reshuffle wasn't positive for all: Labour MP and former Housing Minister Phil Twyford was demoted with his Housing portfolio split into three over the failures of KiwiBuild. 

National leader Simon Bridges also reshuffled his Cabinet earlier this week. After senior National MP Amy Adams announced she would step down in 2020, Paul Goldsmith was promoted and given her Finance portfolio. 

The House of Representatives is constantly shifting with fresh faces entering the arena in bids to influence policy. 

Test your knowledge of our MPs and see if you can name 20 out of 120.
