Re: Conference Arrangements Committee (Constituency Section) – Election 2015
Further to my email in January, this is to inform you that after the General Election I most likely will have the privilege of becoming a member of the NEC. This is because Kate Osamor has been chosen as the PPC for Edmonton and in the event of her election to parliament will no longer be a member of the NEC as MPs cannot be members of the CLP section. Kate will be a superb MP. As the runner up in the NEC ballot I therefore will take Kate’s place on the NEC.
Given these circumstances I am now withdrawing from the CAC Election and would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
As an NEC member I will post regular reports on the very popular website leftfutures.org. Reports will also be circulated to CLP Secretaries.
You may like to know that my close colleague Jon Lansman is standing for the CAC in my place. Jon will be writing to you. Jon would be indefatigable in defending the rights of CLPs and their delegates. I would urge your CLP to give serious consideration to nominating Jon.
Yours in comradeship
