Last Month, Harriet Harman writes,
As well as mounting a strong opposition to the Tories and understanding the lessons from our election defeat, we need to get on and elect a new Leader and Deputy Leader.
The NEC met this afternoon to decide on the timetable for the leadership election, ….
This leadership election will be run under the new rules we agreed last year: a broad and inclusive contest with one person, one vote. We want as many people as possible to have a vote. More than 30,000 new members have joined the party in the last few days and I hope many more members and supporters will take this opportunity to have their voice heard.
In the meantime, Labour will be taking forward our important task as the official Opposition of holding the Government to account.
We will send you further details about how to submit supporting nominations and the hustings schedule.

Voting will be done by all Labour members, affiliate members and registered supporters, and will be conducted using a secret postal ballot (or on-line). There are no “colleges” so each vote is of equal worth. This is the “One Member, One Vote” closed primary promised when Labour’s Special Conference adopted the recommendations and rule changes of the Collins Review. You can join, or become a registered supporter by going to the Labour’s Party’s join us page. Affiliated membership is via your trade union or an affiliated socialist society.
