Full 2015 CLP leadership nominations list – and what’s changed from 2010?

The deadline for Constituency Labour Parties (CLPs) to make a nomination in the leadership and deputy leadership contests closed on Friday (July 31st). 387 CLPs decided to support a candidate for leader, slightly down on the 396 who did so in 2010.

The final results were:

Jeremy Corbyn: 152
Andy Burnham: 111
Yvette Cooper: 106
Liz Kendall: 18

Below, we have compared 2015 CLP endorsements with those from 2010 (a full list of 2010 nominations is here). There are plenty of blank spaces because not all CLPs nominate. And in Scotland, the party decided to use Holyrood rather than Westminster constituencies this time round. Where it seemed there was an obvious crossover between the two types of seat, we have attempted to show who was nominated in 2010, but largely this was not possible.

At the bottom, you can see a simple table of all the 2015 CLP nominations.

It is worth comparing to get a sense of how the membership of the party has changed over the past five years. For instance, Andy Burnham won the support of 44 seats in 2010, yet only 28 of them nominated a candidate this time around – and of those, fewer than half (13) backed Burnham again. However, Burnham did win more of his old CLPs than anyone else, and picked up more of the former David Miliband supporting constituencies (40) than other candidates. Burnham also won the most CLPs that had supported Ed Balls last time (5). He gained just 11 former Ed Miliband seats, and most of his support (41) came from CLPs that did not nominate in 2010.

However, that was a common theme: both Yvette Cooper (46) and Jeremy Corbyn (58) saw more support from CLPs who did not nominate in 2010 than other sources. Before too much is made of that though, it should be noted that these numbers include Scottish seats, and the aforementioned problems of comparing them to the last contest.

David Miliband had come top of the CLP nominations list in 2o10, so there were plenty of his old supporting seats to go around. A large chunk of Cooper’s support (35) came from his total. The Shadow Home Secretary also got 23 of Ed Miliband’s former seats – more than double what Burnham had got. She took 6 seats that had supported Burnham in 2010, and 3 each from Balls and Abbott supporting constituencies.

Jeremy Corbyn took more CLPs that nominated Ed Miliband than the other candidates, with 43 making the Ed Miliband to Corbyn transition. He also, perhaps surprisingly, found the support of 33 CLPs that had nominated David Miliband five years ago. 9 seats that had nominated Abbott last time moved to the Corbyn column, the same number who went from Burnham to Corbyn.

Half of Liz Kendall’s CLPs (9) came from the David Miliband pile, while 3 came from Ed Miliband supporting seats and 1 (Bermondsey and Old Southwark, if you’re asking) had supported Diane Abbott last time around.
