Democracy in the labour movement: Labour's NEC election

Submitted by AWL on 6 October, 2020 - 7:34

In a Huffington Post interview on 2 October, Keir Starmer said that the ten policy points of his Labour leadership campaign “were important pledges... and they remain my priorities”. But he’s not been heard to argue for them since being elected! Pressure to keep him to them can be raised by voting for left candidates in the National Executive ballot (19 October to 12 November) and pressing for a proper Labour Party conference (in-person, or online with voting) in early 2021. Unfortunately Richard Rieser, backed by Solidarity for the “disabled” NEC seat as having a stronger left record than the “official” left candidate, just failed to get onto the ballot.
