Corbyn names shadow ministers
15 Septembar 2015, Nirapad News: Jeremy Corbyn has announced most of the key jobs in his first shadow cabinet,
with defeated leadership rival Andy Burnham becoming shadow home secretary.
The new Labour leader named his campaign manager John McDonnell as shadow chancellor, while Hilary Benn remains shadow foreign secretary.
It means the top roles on the Labour front bench are all taken by men, reports the BBC.
However, Angela Eagle, the new shadow business secretary, was also named shadow first secretary of state.
It means she will stand in for Corbyn at Prime Minister’s Questions when Prime Minister David Cameron is away.
Lewisham MP Heidi Alexander will take over from Burnham as shadow health secretary while Lord Falconer, a former
flat mate of ex-PM Tony Blair, will continue as shadow justice secretary.
Chuka Umunna said he was leaving the front bench by ‘mutual agreement’ and Mary Creagh also joined a number of
MPs from the previous shadow cabinet who opted to return to the backbenches.
