Amid the local election campaigns, Windrush scandal and other issues going on, the NEC elections have fallen out of the eyeline of many Labour members, but they are no less crucial than they’ve ever been since Jeremy Corbyn became leader.
All nine ‘CLP’ representatives – those who directly represent the Labour Party membership – are up for election this summer and it’s vital that members engage with the process, spread awareness and ensure maximum turnout.
The candidate slate for the left to support consists of Yasmine Dar, Huda Elmi, Rachel Garnham, Ann Henderson, Claudia Webbe, Navendu Mishra, Darren Williams, Peter Willsman and Jon Lansman:
CLPs (constituency Labour parties) need to communicate their nominations to Labour HQ no later than 22 June – and those organised on a branch basis need to complete their branch nominations in time for their next full CLP meeting to get nominations in on time.
The continued impetus of Labour as a genuine alternative to Tory government depends on the left organising to maintain control of the NEC. The right will certainly be organising to try to take it.
