Victoria's newly re-elected Labor government has swung a minor cabinet reshuffle after a group of right-aligned MPs defected to Premier Daniel Andrews' left faction.
Almost a week after leading Labor to a resounding third successive election win, Mr Andrews unveiled his new frontbench after caucus met on Friday afternoon.
Northern Metropolitan Region MP Enver Erdogan and St Albans MP Natalie Suleyman were promoted to cabinet at the expense of Veterans and Commonwealth Games Legacy Minister Shaun Leane.
Another cabinet spot was left open by the retirement of upper house MP Jaala Pulford.
Mr Leane will be put forward as a candidate for his previous role as upper house president.
"Otherwise everyone else has been re-endorsed," Mr Andrews told reporters in parliament.
Ms Suleyman and Mr Erdogan are expected to be sworn in at a ceremony at Government House as early as Monday.
Ministerial portfolios will be allocated over the weekend, Mr Andrews said.
Seven members from the party's right faction have shifted to the premier's Socialist Left faction after the election, including Treasurer Tim Pallas and Major Events Minister Steve Dimopoulos.
Mr Pallas said the move was a collective decision and was not premeditated.
"I just spoke to my colleagues. We have a tight little group and only in the last few days did we form the view that it was probably a desirable thing to do," he told reporters outside parliament.
Mr Andrews said he hadn't attended a factional meeting in 12 years and won't for the next four years.
