Welsh Labour have today published the list of candidates for the Constituency Labour Party (CLP) section of the Welsh Executive Committee (WEC).
The WEC is responsible for making many of the strategic decisions about the running of the Welsh Labour Party, including candidates selection, CLP organisation, and the method by which the Party elects its Leader and Deputy.
All positions on the WEC are elected by individual parts of the Welsh Labour family, including CLPs, trade unions, socialist societies and elected representatives.
There are ten positions on the WEC for CLP representatives, two for each region of Wales, who serve a two year term. At least one representative in each region must be a woman. To be eligible to stand for WEC a potential candidate needs the nomination of their home CLP. Potential candidates can also collect "supporting" nominations from other CLPs, but these do not play any formal part in the election procedure.
Nominations for the WEC opened on 23 June 2017 and closed on 27 October 2017. A ballot of Labour Party members will take place early in 2018, with the successful candidates taking their seats at the close of Welsh Labour Conference in April. Members who applied for membership up until 1 July 2017 - when the process began - will be eligible to take part in the ballot.
