NCC elections 2018
Following a rule change passed at this year’s Labour Party Conference, there are now elections for six additional CLP representatives to serve for approximately 3 years on the National Constitutional Committee (NCC).
The NCC is the highest body in Labour’s disciplinary procedures, handling the most serious cases and ensuring that the Labour rulebook is upheld in a fair and transparent manner. CLPs may nominate up to 6 candidates by Sunday, 28 October.
Following an open application process, Momentum’s NCG have decided to back the following candidates:
The Momentum-backed candidates – including two lawyers, an academic and a senior trade unionist – have the expertise and experience necessary to sit on the NCC. They also have a firm commitment to a member-led, socialist Labour Party and are from regions across the country – which is very important if we are to address the unrepresentative composition of the current NCC.
Please find more information about the candidates and how to nominate them in your CLP below.
How to nominate
- Conference delegates have voting rights – but secretaries are responsible for submitting details of the delegate vote.
- Local parties should arrange meetings to nominate their preferred six candidates and secretaries should ensure nominations are submitted at the latest 28 October.
- However, delegates who were elected to represent their CLP at Labour Conference will then need to agree which candidates to vote for in the actual ballot.
- The votes cast will carry proportional weight according to the size of the constituency’s Labour membership.
- Nominations will close on 28 October and the ballot to elect the new NCC representatives will open 12 November. The closing date for the ballot is 25 November.
