The party’s powerful org-sub met today to discuss the latest upcoming selections – and in particular which selections will be All Women Shortlists and which will be open. Four seats were confirmed as AWS, but one – Salford and Eccles – is still to be decided.
After a discussion described by one org-sub member as “fractious”, the vote was tied (an unusual result), meaning that the full NEC will need to decide what kind of selection will be held there.
The other selections are as follows:
Great Grimsby – AWS
Cynon Valley – AWS
Swansea East – AWS
Ashton under Lyne – AWS
These selections (all in Labour-held seats) will take place over the coming months
