Over half of Labour members are unsure which nine candidates they will vote for in the forthcoming NEC election for CLP Representatives.
Nearly 500 Labour members answered a survey sent out by Labour Grassroots last Thursday (13th August) and 52% said they had not made up their mind.
For a small number this was a matter of supporting a ‘slate’ of six and being uncertain where to place their remaining three votes.
However, 47% responded that they would not be voting for a slate at all and would be choosing individual candidates.
The survey followed our NEC Election special in which we invited candidates from both slates and several individual candidates to share their ideas on how the Labour Party could be improved.
This was the only ‘hustings’ involving candidates from right across the country and the survey found that two-thirds of respondents were keen to watch a further discussion involving more candidates.
