Rumours emerge of September announcement for Labour leadership contest

13th May, 2015 11:59 am

Early reports suggest that the new Labour leader could be announced on the 12th of September – two weeks before the party’s annual conference.

While this story may come from a member of the National Executive Committee (NEC) briefing out early what they think the outcome will be, it is worth noting that the meeting to decide the timetable only starts at 12 noon, and will have to be decided on by a vote. The September 12th date cannot be confirmed until the outcome of that vote.
