The campaign of left-winger Mark Drakeford for the leadership of the Welsh Labour Party continues to build impetus. Hot on the heels of endorsements by Unite and South Wales NUM, the CWU and Unison unions have also declared their support.
With the switch to OMOV (one member, one vote) from the old ‘electoral college’ system following a special conference in Cardiff last month expected to favour the left-wing candidate, Drakeford’s campaign is building a strong head of steam.
Ballots go out to Welsh Labour members from 9 November and the result will be announced 6 December. Welsh Labour will hopefully soon have the socialist leader it needs. It can’t come too soon.
