Labour Party branch votes for reselection
Last week, the Socialist reported that a motion backing the mandatory reselection of Labour MPs passed at Chingford Labour Party branch. We are pleased to report that at a meeting on 25 November the Leyton and Wanstead constituency general committee also voted to endorse mandatory reselection, this time proposed by the Wanstead branch:
Wanstead Labour Party branch welcomes the reelection of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour Party leader as a reflection of the general mood in the Labour Party against austerity.
MPs have not got 'jobs for life'. They represent their constituency but ultimately they are selected by and accountable to their Constituency Labour Party. To ensure democratic accountability and the rights of party members to select candidates that reflect their views, this branch supports the need for mandatory reselection of Labour MPs in each Parliament as essential.
We call on the General Committee of Leyton & Wanstead CLP to support a rule change to the Labour Party rulebook to reintroduce mandatory reselection of MPs before each general election.
