Subject: BAME nominee for the NEC Elections
As you are aware, we are currently in the “nominations” phase of Labour Party elections – candidates must receive enough nominations for Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) or affiliated organisations so that they can be on the ballot for the final vote. In the elections, all CLPs can also nominate people for the NEC vacancies. As you will know they will need the support of 5 CLPs to qualify to stand.
I was wondering if your CLPs would be willing to support my nomination as the BAME nominee for the NEC in the elections. I attach a personal statement for your CLP members consideration. I hope that they find the information useful. I can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org for any further information you may need.
