Winning Labour’s NCC election with 327,292 votes

I am absolutely privileged to have been elected onto Labour’s National Constitutional Committee. I topped the poll with 327,292 votes and my fellow candidates on the Left slate all got elected too. This is a proud moment for me to be elected by Party members and to win in such style is very pleasing too.

I ran on a manifesto to democratise the NCC and make it fit for our mass membership. Far too many members had hitherto been suspended when a lesser sanction might have been more appropriate. I shall apply principles of natural justice and due process to ensure that everyone is treated equally and fairly.

As a Bangldeshi Muslim who grew up in a council house, this is a particularly noteworthy achievement, because internal party structures have not always reflected the diversity of our wide membership. I hope to set a good example for other ethnic minority members to come through the ranks and make a contribution to our Party.
