Stratford Votes for open selection 34-11 & Little Ilford 36-23

Well done to Newham Labour Party Branch members in Stratford (the site of the 2014 Olympics and the biggest ward in Newham) and Little Ilford for voting NO and wanting an open and fair selection process for Newham Labour Mayor in 2018.

It is now 6/10 NO to affirming the current Newham Executive Mayor as a candidate in 2018 with another 16 votes to go by 4 December.

If the current mayor is selected then he would have been in power for 27 years while other Council leaders are tested & re elected every 4 years.

I don't think this is right and want an open & fair selection for the next Labour Mayor candidate.

Their seems likely that more contenders will show their hand soon and join Councillor Whitworth as being possible candidates to be the Newham Labour Mayor.

Love it.
