NOMINATIONS FOR CONFERENCE ARRANGEMENTS COMMITTEE 2019

Motion to the NEC: delegate accountability

Accountability – suggested motion for CLPs to send to General Secretary, 28 March 2019

This CLP notes:

  1. The Labour Party has several systems to elect internal positions including: OMOV and via delegates at Conference.
  2. 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:

  1. Results of internal elections for National Committees are published on Membersnet, broken down by CLP.
