A bigger disciplinary panel
The Labour Party Conference agreed to double the size of the National Constitutional Committee (NCC – the Party’s disciplinary body). The aim is to speed up the party’s backlog of processing discipline cases which has long been criticised. Another 14 members have been added to the body increasing it’s size from 11 to 25. Six of these seats are to be elected by Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) and nominations for those places were sought.
We have been advised that the procedure to be followed is for our Conference delegate to vote on behalf of the CLP. The Secretary will submit the vote on behalf of our delegate. The reason the election is being handled in this way is because the NCC is normally elected at Conference by Conference delegates vote.
The Executive Committee when it met, decided that we should invite members attending the General Meeting on the 10th November to consider the candidates and express their preference for which six candidates Broadland CLP Conference delegate should vote for.
Thirteen candidates have been nominated for those six places. A list of those candidates can be found here.
To appear on the ballot paper nominees needed to get at minimum number of nominations from CLPs (Including their own CLP). The following list gives the names (in alphabetic order) and the number of nominations they received from CLPs, all of whom met that test and will be on the ballot paper. Their biographies areavaliable here.
