On leadership elections

When Eton and Winchester were established, some 600 years ago, it was written into their charters that all pupils would be poor scholars taken from the community” – Robert Verkaik, Guardian, 30 April 2019.

The European average for public spending is nearly 49% of GDP. Official figures suggest that the UK’s public spending is some 38.5% of GDP. UK public sector borrowing is 1.2% of GDP – data from the Sunday Times, 28 April 2019.
Accountability – suggested motion for CLPs to send to General Secretary, 28 March 2019
This CLP notes:
- The Labour Party has several systems to elect internal positions including: OMOV and via delegates at Conference.
- CLPs often make nominations, which should then be a guide to the CLPs delegates to Conference.
However, there needs to be a clearer mechanism for allowing a CLP to check how its delegates voted on their behalf. This should be the CLP’s democratic right.
Our CLP therefore calls on the NEC to ensure:
- Results of internal elections for National Committees are published on Membersnet, broken down by CLP.
