It's not just David Cameron putting his cabinet together today.
The Labour party may have had an utterly disastrous election, but a shadow cabinet still needs to be formed by the acting leader Harriet Harman - and that's just what she's been up to this morning.
Harman has opted to keep the shadow cabinet largely unchanged - except where shadow ministers have failed to return to parliament as MPs.
Step in Chris Leslie as the new Ed Balls.
The former shadow chief secretary to the treasury (number two to the chancellor) and MP for Nottingham East, was the youngest in parliament when he entered as MP for Shipley in 1997, aged just 25 and worked as a parliamentary secretary for Lord Falconer among others.
He lost his seat between 2005 and 2010, but returned as MP for Nottingham and was a shadow treasury minister under Ed Balls.
He was also campaign manager for Gordon Brown during the former PM's run to succeed Tony Blair.
Here's Leslie on the campaign trail in the run up to election.
The leadership challengers hoping to replace Ed Miliband at the reins of the party are remaining in their pre-election posts - Chuka Umunna as shadow business secretary, Andy Burnham as shadow health secretary, and Yvette Cooper as home secretary.
