A re-run of the controversial United Left nomination vote is looking increasingly likely after details emerged of supporters of Howard Beckett excluded from voting.
Steve Turner was declared the winner of the contest by 3 votes. However, at least 11 of Beckett supporters were prevented from voting with more due to be reported this afternoon.
A key aspect of the disenfranchisement appears to have been the provision of incorrect member email addreses provided to the company running the vote.
Those unable to vote include three members who had recorded videos endorsing Beckett for the nomination.
A report has been submitted and a meeting has been called for Monday that will include Unite’s General Secretary Len McCluskey.
