Forest Gate North Labour Party Councillor candidate selection process

Following the resignation of Forest Gate North Councillor, Ellie Robertson, in order to take up a politically restricted post in City Hall, we have a Newham Council by election on July 14 (Bastille Day).

This Thursday 16 June there will be a meeting of Forest Gate North Branch Labour Party members to decide who to short list and then elect as our candidate for this vacancy.

I hope all eligible members will turn up to select our candidate. You need to be a fully paid up member for at least 6 months and you cannot be in subscription arrears (although you can pay up any arrears before the start of the meeting).

I am Vice Chair of the Branch and gave a commitment to members at our last meeting that the branch would to every thing possible to make sure that the selection process is fair, democratic and inclusive.
