Dunedin National MP Michael Woodhouse is promising to hold Labour to account over the Dunedin Hospital rebuild.
Mr Woodhouse told the South Today he was slowly getting used to being in opposition and felt for some of his Wellington staff, who had "effectively lost their jobs as a result of this".
He and the rest of the National Party would need to quickly "get back in the game" and be a strong opposition, which he said was one of the foundations of good democracy.
He had congratulated both Clare Curran and David Clark and said it was good to have Dunedin represented in Cabinet.
He would now be focused on holding them to account, particularly Dr Clark over the promises he had made about Dunedin Hospital.
"I've got a good memory, I've got a good dossier of those commitments and I'll be reminding him of them every step of the way.
"When he trips up, he can be sure I'll be there."
