Ballots open on Thursday 26th July for Labour’s National Executive Committee election.
This is a crucial election. Tory chaos is propelling Britain towards the precipice of a no-deal Brexit, while Labour spends time alienating Jewish members by watering down its definition of antisemitism.
We are therefore backing nine candidates who are willing to face up to the big questions of our generation. They are calling for Labour members to have a say on Brexit at party conference this year, and they support the full IHRA definition of antisemitism.
This diverse team of candidates represents every corner of the country, and they are standing on a platform for each nation and region to have a designated representative on Labour’s NEC. They are all passionate Labour progressives who have decades of experience in campaigning for social equality, for the rights of minorities, and for a better, more prosperous country. Please give them your support.
