Members take reigns of centrist-run local party
Yesterday the SKWAWKBOX broadcast the call by the left of Manchester Central CLP (constituency Labour party) for members to attend a meeting tonight called to vote on whether the CLP would switch to an ‘all-member meeting’ structure, under a new rule brought in at last year’s annual conference.
The SKWAWKBOX can reveal that in a fairly tight vote – around 110-90 although still awaiting confirmation – the CLP has voted to switch to all-member.
The push for a change had been driven jointly by the perceived use of the old delegate meeting basis by the right to retain control of the CLP’s power structures and by a need to make meetings more inclusive.
