Chaos breaks out as left slate ‘agreed’ after long meeting – but left groups say they know nothing about it
After a long meeting in London concluded this afternoon, Labour sources reported this evening that CLPD (Campaign for Labour Party Democracy) and Momentum had at last agreed a joint ‘slate’ of candidates for the National Executive Committee (NEC) by-elections currently underway.
CLPD has now denied that such an agreement was made, although Labour sources continue to insist that it was.
Around a third of constituency parties have made their nominations without clear guidance from the main left groupings – and after what appeared to be progress, the confusion is deeper than ever.
