As agreed at our launch conference on February 22, we are now planning on how the LLA can intervene in the next full elections for the Labour Party NEC, which will be held this summer.
The process for selecting left-wing candidates has for far too long been shrouded in mystery, while many of those who have eventually been elected as part of the left slate often turn out to be anything but left-wing. There is very little accountability and even less transparency.
The LLA wants to help change that. We therefore agreed that we will approach other Labour left organisations with the view of putting together a joint slate of candidates in a democratic and transparent manner.
