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

    Replacing a system which is clumsy and fraught with issues needs to be changed to something simple and democratic, there will be those who vehemently oppose any change because they will be the ones worried for their position. Losing their seats because they do only what pits them in the limelight or increase their presence for the sake of publicity only and not to make life better for their constituents.

    So they will fight tooth and nail, bring in loyal members of they feel they will lose our pull the vote of they can’t. I’ve seen it happen too many times in differing constituencies.
