Thanks to the Campaign for Labour Party Democracy for the information below.
Annual Conference and Annual Women’s Conference:
The deadline for the election of delegates, nominations for internal elections and submission of rule changes is noon on Friday 23 June.
So now is the time to ensure your CLP makes the appropriate preparations for this year’s conferences. Information from the party can be found here about the Annual Conference and here about the Annual Women’s Conference.
Priority issues for supporters of party democracy are:
- Election of delegates
- Rule Changes
1) Nominate grassroots centre-left candidates for internal elections
CLPD and other groups in the Centre-Left Grassroots Alliance (CLGA) are supporting the candidates below. The deadline for CLPs to submit their nominations for the three committees below is noon on Friday 23 June.

To assist with making nominations at CLP meetings, the statements of all the above candidates can be downloaded as a PDF here and as a MS Word document here.
Please note that NWC nominations should be made by Women’s Branches where such branches exist, otherwise they can be made by the CLP.
The elections for the CAC and NCC will take place at the Party’s Annual Conference (8 – 11 October) and the elections for the NWC will take place at the Party’s National Women’s Conference (7 October).
2) Elect delegates who support party democracy
The Annual Conferences provide opportunities to contest the current offensive taking place against party democracy. A number of important votes will be taking place at the Annual and Women’s Conferences.
As many CLPs as possible need to send delegates who will vote in support of party democracy.
Please note that delegates for the Women’s Conference should be elected by Women’s Branches where such branches exist, otherwise they are elected by the CLP.
The deadline for the election of delegates is noon on Friday 23 June.
3) Rule changes
CLPs are encouraged to consider submitting a rule change proposal to this year’s Annual Conference. The deadline for CLPs to submit a rule change is 12 noon Friday 23 June.
CLPD’s recommended rule changes for consideration can be downloaded as a PDF here and as a MS Word document here.
