All eyes are on Jacinda Ardern's under-pressure ministers ahead of today's Cabinet reshuffle.
The fate of Housing and Transport Minister Phil Twyford has been the subject of much speculation, following an under performing KiwiBuild scheme.
Ministers Iain Lees-Galloway and David Clark have also been singled out.
But Victoria University's Bryce Edwards told Kate Hawkesby it's feared Ardern will shy away from the hard decisions.
"[The reshuffle] might be too mild and it might be a bit too cautious - and she might not actually deal with some of those ministers that haven't delivered," he said.
