Two important changes took place on Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC) on Tuesday. Diane Abbott replaced Kate Osamor, because Ms Osamor was on the NEC as a Cabinet representative but resigned from the front bench last month.
In the more significant change, CLP representative Ann Henderson has replaced Unison’s Keith Birch as chair of the equalities subcommittee and therefore in the important Officers group, which plays a large role in deciding the NEC’s priorities and programme. Henderson was elected to the NEC as a member of the left slate.
