What are the committees? The Conference Arrangements Committee (CAC) makes decisions about the running of the party’s national conference. The National Constitutional Committee (NCC) makes decisions on disciplinary cases within the Party (for example where members have been suspended due to allegations of antisemitism, inappropriate political activity or bullying).
Why make CLP nominations? Nominations are used to determine who gets on the ballot with every candidate needing to get above a particular threshold. But beyond this, nominations are mainly symbolic as all these positions are elected via separate votes either of members in the case of the CAC or of conference delegates in the case of the NCC. However, nominations are a key way of signalling support for candidates and of increasing members’ understanding the structures and committees that make up our party. For the NCC, they also provide a guide for our conference delegates in how to vote, as the NCC members will be chosen by delegates at party conference. CAC members will be chosen by a one-member-one-vote ballot of all Labour Party members over the summer.
Procedure for nominations: Each CLP is allowed to nominate up to two people for the CAC and up to three for the NCC; and we will choose our nominees by paper ballot at the meeting on 5th June. Only members of SE Cornwall CLP may vote.
