Vote Anna Dyer and Emine Ibrahim for Labour's NCC

CLP delegates at 2017 Labour Party Conference can vote to elect two representatives to Labour's National Constitutional Committee (NCC).

The NCC (CLP Section) ballot takes place on Tuesday 26 September at Labour Party Conference.

The Centre-Left Grassroots Alliance is urging members to vote for Anna Dyer and Emine Ibrahim.

Both will work to ensure the Party's internal governance facilitates winning national and local elections, so procedures need to demonstrate transparency, equality and fairness. And our rules ought to be applied in a just manner.

National Executive Committee 19 September 2017
