I am standing for a two year term as a constituency representative on Labour’s National Executive Committee (NEC). This is a role I previously held from 2010 to 2012, missing re-election in 2012 by under 250 votes.
Nominations are now open. Each CLP can nominate up to six candidates. The vote on who to nominate usually happens at a CLP General Meeting (in some CLPs this is a delegate-based meeting, in others it is an All Member Meeting). Nominations close on 24 June.
To be validly nominated you need support from your own CLP and at least two others from different regions.
I am also recommending CLPs nominate Ellies Reeves, Peter Wheeler and Johanna Baxter. Two additional recommendations will be announced in due course.
A One Member One Vote ballot will take place in July and August. Each member of the Party can vote for up to six NEC candidates, with the first six past-the-post, including a minimum of three women, elected.
