Mandatory Reselection

Open selection

Opening the doors to new talent it can motivate even the flattest of Parliamentary members to achieve. As Labour Party members, we believe that the selection process for MPs needs to change.

At the moment, a party member can’t challenge a sitting Labour MP unless they mount a negative campaign against them.

It’s off-putting to potential candidates, and means only a handful of open contests have happened in Labour-held seats in nearly 30 years.

We want a process that gives a fair chance to all candidates and does away with this negative, divisive stage of campaigning – so it’s an open contest from the start, and there are no “jobs for life”.

That way, local members and the sitting MP can compete for the Labour Party’s backing at the general election, and run positive campaigns about issues local voters really care about.
