The US President-elect’s transition chief says Barack Obama’s will seek to reverse Bush administration policies when he enters office on January 20.

John Podesta says executive orders by President George W Bush on issues such as stem cell research and oil drilling are at odds with Obama\'s views.

He says they could be easily repealed, as no Congressional action was needed.

Obama and Bush will today hold their first meeting since the Democrat\'s election victory.

Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their two daughters, Malia and Sasha, will be given a tour of their new home at the White House.
