Push to complete trigger ballots before general election called
The Labour Party has suspended ongoing selection processes across the country, with emails going to members of CLPs currently selecting for vacancies to inform them.
Labour sources say that the suspension is to focus resources on the party’s ‘trigger ballot’ process in seats with Labour MPs, in an attempt to complete them before a general election is called.
The decision may mean that if a general election is called before the suspended process can be resumed, campaign timescales will require the shortlisting of candidates by the NEC from which members will select their final candidate.
