The Campaign for Labour Party Democracy is seeking to update party rules to more explicitly spell out that the incumbent leader does not need to seek nominations in the event of a leadership challenge.
The group has received legal advice that this is already the case. But spokesman Jon Lansman told the Star yesterday that an amendment was needed to “remove any element of doubt.”
I am with Jon Lansman. This needs to be EXPLICITILY CHANGED. I DO NOT TRUST THE RIGHT WING OF THE LABOUR PARTY NOT TO ABUSE THIS LATER.
