The Leadership nomination meeting on 8 February will also have the opportunity to nominate for the CLP representative vacancies on the National Executive Committee (NEC). There are vacancies for two CLP representatives and one BAME (black, Asian and minority ethnic) representative.  The process decided by the NEC is that nominations for all three positions can be made from the floor of the meeting on the 8th February. However, a nominee does not have to be a member of Broadland CLP. As secretary I expect to be sent emails from those wishing us to nominate them. I will put those communicationson the site as I recieve them see– https://www.broadlandlabour.org.uk/category/bame-clp-nec-candidates/.

Nominations

NEC CLP Representatives

Nominations for the CLP rep can be taken from the floor. To be eligible to stand for this position a candidate must  have 12 months continuous membership from the date of the relevant date set by the NEC nomination meeting. Therefore only members who have been a member on or before 20th January 2019 will be eligible to stand for this position.

NEC BAME Representative

Nominations for the BAME NEC representative can be taken from the floor. To be eligible to stand for this position a candidate must have 12 months continuous membership from the date of the relevant date set by the NEC nomination meeting. Therefore only members who have been a member on or before 15th February 2019 will be eligible to stand for this position and have formally notified the party that they self-define as BAME.

Up to ten minutes will be allowed for members to read any nominees statements that have been provided by the candidates to the CLP [before they have been nominated]. At the end of this period the number of eligible members in the meeting [all members in the meeting must be eligible] will be announced. No members arriving after this point will be eligible to participate in the meeting or the ballot.

Ballot & Count

Tellers will be elected (by a show of hands) from amongst those members present and following a discussion of the candidates’ qualities ballot papers will be given out.

NEC CLP Representatives

Members can the vote to nominate a maximum of TWO people by writing the name clearly on the ballot paper of up to two members they wish to choose from amongst those nominated. The two candidates with the most votes will be declared the winners and nominated by the CLP.

NEC BAME Representative

Members can vote to nominate a BAME representative by writing the name clearly on the ballot paper of the member they wish to choose from amongst those nominated, The candidate with the most votes will be declared the winner and nominated by the CLP.

The secretary will ensure that the members so nominated are submitted using the democracy portal as Broadland CLP nominees. If there are no nominations from the floor the meeting shall move on to the choice of nominees for Leader & Deputy Leader.

This is my interpretation of the procedure handed down as procedures committee version 1
