Latest Amendments to the Party Constitution Pass

Editor's picture

After being put to member vote the results for the latest amendments to the Party constitution are now available. Members voted in favour of accepting all of the proposed amendments and the new Constitution is now available.

As an immediate consequence of these amendments the following must occur:

  • The NEC must have a Code of Practive which should refer to all voting NEC positions other than Leader & Deputy
  • The Board must empanel a Financial Oversight Committee - it does already informally have one but this must become an official one
  • Nominations for Deputy Leader must open as soon as practicable
  • The NEC must designate a voting NEC member who is responsible to the party for the management of the party's finances - it may do this via its Code of Practice
