Abbas 4 Mayor
No one person is bigger than the Party. Our elected National Executive Council leadership have decided overwhelming to back Abbas in very difficult circumstances. Abbas is an able and experienced leader and politician. He was very positive towards the trade unions when I was the Tower Hamlets UNISON Labour Link officer and I have always thought he was a decent and honest secular socialist.
I understand that there has been a failed legal attempt to challenge this decision. Nominations close at noon tomorrow.
I shall look forward to the campaign!
