The Labour Representation Committee (LRC) has backed Birkenhead councillor Jo Bird in the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) by-elections.
The LRC, which yesterday backed Deborah Hobson for the other member-elected position and Hassan Ahmed for the NEC’s BAME position, has updated its website.
The LRC is one of the constituent members of the Centre-Left Grassroots Alliance (CLGA), which has not yet announced a ‘slate’ of left candidates because of the reported failure of Momentum to cooperate in recent selection meetings.
Bird, who is also backed by Jewish Voice for Labour, currently leads the nominations by local Labour parties, last night adding Chelmsford to the thirty or so who had already voted to support her.
Bird’s candidate statement can be read here.
