Dear West Ham CLP member

You may be aware we will be undergoing the leadership and deputy leadership election alongside there 3 other NEC Positions.

As per the party rules, candidates will need either 33 CLPs or 3 affiliated organisations to be on the ballot paper.

With London region's guidelines we are planning to hold the all members nomination meeting for West Ham CLP:

Please see the attached leaflets for each candidate (Leader & Deputy). For your information I have also attach the guidelines for "all members nomination meeting .

Please arrive early to sign and check in. There will be parking on site however we encourage our members to use public transport if possible.

The venues is located two minutes walk away from West Ham station.

Refreshment will be available.


As per Chapter 2; Clause II; 4 of the Labour Party Rule Book only those members who have passed their 8 week provisional period of membership at the relevant date shall have the right to attend and vote at CLP meetings.

For these purposes, the relevant date agreed by the NEC is date on which the meeting is due to take place. Members who joined between 6 September and 12 December 2019 – and who are therefore subject to the NEC decision to extend the provisional membership period during the General Election – will be entitled to attend and vote, providing they have eight weeks continuous membership at the time of the meeting. The Labour Party 2 Those members who are showing as being in arrears from after the relevant date, will be able to participate in the meeting provided they pay the arrears at the commencement of the meeting, or provide proof that they have since paid the arrears to the national party. Any dispute with regard the eligibility of any member shall where practicable be referred by the CLP Secretary to the Regional Director, who will rule on the member’s eligibility. Where the issue is not clear cut, the Regional Director will consult with the Governance & Legal Unit before giving a ruling.

(East Ham CLP was supposed to be this Saturday 1 February but now may be changed I understand. UPDATE. East Ham CLP leadership meeting now taken place on Saturday 1 February despite clashing with major Pan London campaign day for GLA elections. I wonder what the National Party and London region thinks of this)
