Last year Labour International agreed a Rule Change motion to introduce a simple and regular selection mechanism for all parliamentary, regardless of whether they are sitting MPs or not. That motion will be debated at this year's Labour Party Conference.

Here is the Rule Change Motion.

If you are a Member of the Labour Party or of an affiliated trade union, you can help us by proposing a motion in line with this policy to your branch or CLP and persuading your Conference Delegates to support it.

Here is the model support motion

    Strikes me that the wording here is the last stand of the anti-corbyn blu-labour bunch. Defining re-selection as a POST election procedure potentially guarantees the current sneaky infiltrators their maximum chance to undermine many positive results that are otherwise guaranteed to a wholeheartedly leftwing UK parliament.

    We need shot of the false-flaggers BEFORE we will get a proper chance to set things right.

    I totally agree that MP selection should take place before every election (as we do for Councillors).
    It should be automatic to stop it being seen as combative.
    BUT… in the words of Mr Spock “This is illogical Captain”.
    “Following an election … the procedure for selection of Candidates shall be…”
    Following =after. Selection must come before.
    The wording needs to be … “Prior to every Parliamentary election…”

    It’s about time MPs were more accountable to their voters.
