Given that for all of these positions, with the exception of the role of representative to the Federal Executive, the number of nominations matched or were less than the places available, all candidates were elected unopposed.

The results were as follows:

Chair of the English Party - Peter Ellis has been re-elected Chair unopposed.

Chair of the English Candidates Committee - Margaret Joachim has been re-elected Chair unopposed.

Representative to the Federal Conference Committee and to the Federal Policy Committee - Geoff Payne has been re-elected unopposed

Members of the English Council Executive - Steve Jarvis, Geoff Payne, Dawn Davidson, Anders Hanson, Mike Wheatley, Neil Walton, Stan Collins, Jeanette Crossland, Darren Briddock, Paul Clark, Tahir Maher, Brian Orrell

Members of the English Candidates Committee - Dawn Davidson, Darren Briddock, Jenny Pinkett (Two places remain unfilled)

There will be a contested election for the position of representative to the Federal Executive between Jonathan Webber and Brian Orrell. The ballot will be open to members of the English Council and will close on Wednesday 7th November.

Rachael Clarke explains
  • These elections are restricted by the English Constitution to existing members of English Council.

    Members of English Council are elected at Regional Conferences each autumn - your Regional Secretary and Regional Chair should have an idea of how many English Council members they can elect.

    English Council only meets twice a year - so if you are busy elsewhere, it's not too taxing. English Council is also where the vast majority of working groups for the English Party are found - including co-optees to the Regional Parties' Committee (which deals with disciplinary issues and best practice).
