Labour reveals NEC nominations

  • Comment
The Labour Party has confirmed the nominees for the two local government representatives of its National Executive Committee (NEC).

Sir Jeremy Beecham, leader of the Local Government Association’s Labour group, will face a challenge from Wakefield MDC leader Peter Box for the position on the committee, which he has held since 1997.

With Hammersmith & Fulham LBC councillor Dame Sally Powell standing down, three candidates have put themselves forward for the other position that party rules state must be filled by a woman.

They are Coventry City councillor Ann Lucas, Southwark LBC councillor Dora Dixon-Fyle and Zahida Abbas Noori, councillor at Ealing LBC.

The ballot papers will be sent at the end of June and the results announced in July.
