New Zealand political leader Phil Goff assembled a "shadow cabinet" after his election to the positions of Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition in 2008 unopposed.

The shadow cabinet was mostly made up of New Zealand members of Parliament of the Labour Party; however, Progressive Party leader and sole MP Jim Anderton, who had been in coalition with Labour in the previous Government remained "in coalition" with Labour in Opposition, as the Opposition Agriculture spokesperson.
