“The right to vote for your representatives is a basic tenet of any democratic organisation. No representative should be above scrutiny and accountability. Open selection is not about creating a hostile environment. It is about creating a democratic member-led organisation, about enhancing the Party’s democratic processes. I fully support the Labour International motion as a step towards achieving that crucial goal.”
