A bad start to a crucial week for the Government.

Jacinda Ardern is too sick with Covid to speak at today's Emissions Reduction Plan announcement and will be in isolation for the release of the Budget on Thursday.

Cabinet Minister Phil Twyford has had to cancel a planned trip to Timor-Leste, also due to Covid.

Political commentator Peter Dunne told Kate Hawkesby the Government is also grappling with a new poll, suggesting National and Act have the numbers to form a government.

“I don’t think we’re jumping the gun in terms of reshuffling the Cabinet, I mean, I think that’s been signalled already as being a likely possibility. I suspect there will be some retirements announced over the next few months.”
