I support the rule-change motion on the open selection of Labour Party parliamentary candidates proposed by Labour International CLP in 2017 and discussed at Labour Party Annual Conference in 2018. 

I call upon the NEC to propose a rule change for Open Selection on its own initiative for the next Labour Conference

    This is really needed as soon as possible. Elements of the PLP are using their position not only to avoid democratic accountability, & the splitters avoid by-elections but they have used there position and this notion that they are elected as individuals to really de-stabilise the party. This has been going on for 3 years and has mined various issues to fight a proxy war on the leadership. I even remember one MP even saying Labour (the PLP!) needed to change the membership to get back to an effective centrist New Labour ‘offer’. An offer desperately needed by an electorate blinded by & fed 40 years of neo-liberal nonsense. The message in the the surge of support for a Labour Party re-shaping itself and given hope and optimism by the leadership of Corbyn and the shadow cabinet is inspirational. I am sure Corbyn would agree that ‘no saviour from on high delivers’ & as he has said often its about building a movement making decisions together. Its a politics clearly for the many & not the few. Open selections can only strengthen those political aims and continue to democratise both the party & the unions.
