Timetable for London Mayoral selection confirmed

CIty Hall London

The timetable for Labour’s Mayoral selection ‘primary’ has been confirmed by the party this week. Following the party’s special conference and Collins Review this year, it was agreed that the selection would be open to party members, registered supporters and affiliates who have opted-in to membership, and will take place in the immediate aftermath of the general election. The timetable is as follows:

Applications open: May 18th

Applications close: May 25th

Nominations (from CLPs, affiliates): received by June 15th

Applications for the candidacy will open on May 18th 2015 and close a week later

First hustings: June 20th

Postal Ballot papers dispatched: July 8th

Close of ballot: July 29th

Result announced: July 31st

In total the contest will take around 10 weeks from start to finish (although obviously some candidates have begun campaigning already). This selection will be shorter than the 2010 effort that chose Ken Livingstone, but it will also avoid running through the quiet August period.

Everything Labour.
Every weekday morning.
