Norwich Labour Party will hold online meetings (via Zoom or Microsoft Teams) in September, when members will get the chance to nominate up to 9 CLP reps, Disabled rep and Treasurer candidates.
A full list of candidate statements can be found on the Labour Party website – you will need to log in:
- If you wish to nominate a candidate from the above list for any of these positions, please can you email me in advance with their name(s) – this will help ensure the smooth running of the meeting. Email email@example.com or reply to this email.
For your nomination to be valid, you will also need to attend the meeting.
You can nominate up to 9 CLP reps – no more than five can be men. Other positions one nomination only.
- If the number of candidates nominated by members exceeds the number of places available, the meeting will be followed by an online vote between these nominated candidates. A voting link will be sent out to all members. Voting for CLP reps will be in two parts to ensure gender balance.
- Norwich North and Norwich South are each entitled to submit nominations. We will run two separate online nominations meetings, with an online ballot for each:
– Norwich North – Thursday 10 September
– Norwich South – Friday 11 September (usual AMM date)
- All paid up full members can take part in the CLP nominations meetings. You need to attend the meeting to be entitled to propose a candidate for nomination by the CLP, and to vote as to which to nominate. You also need to have an email address, listed on the Labour Party database, that is unique to you – nominations ballot papers will be emailed out to this address, for all who attend the meeting.
- If any member doesn’t have their own email address, and wants to take part in the CLP nominations meeting, they’ll need to set up a unique address and update this on the database – contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help.
If your address is one you rarely check, you may want to change this to something more accessible.
The purpose of the CLP nominations meetings is to sort out who gets to be on the final ballot. Currently there are around 100 would-be candidates, but only those who secure enough nominations will qualify for the ballot:
- Candidates for CLP rep need to secure the nominations of at least 5 CLPs to secure a place on the final ballot paper
- Candidates for Disabled members rep need 5 CLP nominations or 2 affiliated Trade Unions
- Candidates for Youth member rep need nominations from 50 young members and 2 affiliated organisations
