Breaking: Momentum set to announce own slate later today


This morning, as the SKWAWKBOX revealed, CLPD (Campaign for Labour Party Democracy) announced the slate of left candidates it had agreed with a set of other left-wing groups for the important election of six additional members to Labour’s supreme disciplinary body, the NCC (National Constitutional Committee).

The groups backing the slate did not include Momentum.

The SKWAWKBOX can now exclusively confirm that Momentum’s leadership will be holding a conference call this morning with a view to agreeing its own slate for the contest.

Momentum founder Jon Lansman has cited concerns about the geographical balance of the CLPD slate, but says that Momentum had been prepared to back Jewish Voice for Labour’s (JVL) Stephen Marks although Lansman personally expressed concerns. It’s not yet known whether Marks will appear among Momentum’s recommended candidates.

News of the Momentum slate will follow when it is finalised.
