Please find below three key pieces of information:

– the list of nominations where we are proceeding to ballot.

– details of how you submit a short statement (200 words) to the PLP Office so that we can send all statements out together

If you are standing in a contested ballot on Wednesday the PLP Office will be collating short (200 word) statements to be circulated to all colleagues and avoid too much email traffic. So, if you are in a contested ballot as of 7pm, please send your 200 words to me on this email address by 3pm tomorrow. All statements will then be circulated at 4pm tomorrow.


If you need to arrange a proxy vote for Wednesday’s election please contact me by Tuesday at 5pm

Best wishes

    North Ireland commitee members were elected unopposed according to the email last week. Why are they now holding an election for 2 vacancies?

    Do some select committees still have less candidates than vacancies? The situation would be ridicolous and wouldn’t reflect well on the PLP
