Last night Newton Abbot CLP met to decide who gets our nomination for Leader and Deputy Leader of the Labour Party. Following a well attended and friendly mannered meeting, with members speaking up passionately for the candidates.
For Leader we nominated : Rebecca Long-Bailey who won with 70% of first preference votes.
For Deputy Leader we nominated : Richard Burgon this contest was a lot closer with Richard winning after 3 rounds beating Angela Rayner and Dawn Bulter by 1 vote at round 3.
Thanks to all those who turn out to join in the discussion and vote. The next step is waiting for the individual ballots to drop in a couple of weeks.
Good luck to all the candidates!
