Labour London Region Conference
On 12th November 2016, the London Labour party will be hosting their conference. Each CLP is allowed an allocated number of delegates based on their membership numbers, for Tottenham it is 5. Of the 5, one must be a young member (under 27), 50% (3) have to be a woman member and we have to ensure we have ethnic representation.
The Tottenham Labour Executive Officers have decided that we will be using all of our delegate spaces (at a cost of £40 each).
Any member who joined before October 2015 can be elected to be a delegate, but you need to get a nomination from at least one Branch Labour Party (BLP). If there are more than 5 nominated, then we will go to ballot at the CLP AGM on 26th October 2016. If we have less than 5 nominations or we do not meet the gender, age and ethnicity quota then will be taken from the floor at the CLP AGM.
Elected delegates do not have to pay the £40, this cost will be met by the CLP.
Motions to London Labour Conference
Each CLP can submit one motion to the London Labour Conference. The motion must be related to a Londonwide issue. Motions will come from Branches (BLPs and Affiliates) and be voted upon at the CLP AGM.
Nominations for London Regional Board and National Policy Forum (NPF)
Each CLP in London is asked to make nominations of candidates to London Regional Board and the National Policy Forum (NPF) London Representatives. Any member can stand as long as they've been a member for longer than 12 months (prior to Oct 2015), they also have to be a delegate to the London Labour Conference on 12th November 2016.
You do not have to nominate people from Tottenham, they can be members anywhere in the London area.
Nominations will be made by secret ballot at the CLP AGM on Wednesday 26th October 2016. This is a GC delegates only meeting where only delegates can vote. Where there is only one candidate for a post, the vote will be based on whether we nominate that candidate or not. Where there is more than one candidate, the ballot will be 'first past the post' (i.e. who got the most votes).
All positions are for one candidate except National Policy Forum and Divisional Members which have two positions. At least one of the two must be a woman.
