Update on Local Primaries

25

Sep

Having had such positive feedback regarding the ability for Associations to use Open Primaries for local selections, as well as Parliamentary, I am pleased to say that this initiative was passed by the Board of the Party last month. This means that Associations can, if they so wish, run an Open Primary to select a candidate for a Ward with respect to the Local Elections. Open Primaries have a been a great success for our Party and have made a positive step forward in terms of reaching out to our broader community.

The link below will take you to the excellent work that Andrew Kennedy is doing in this area including the recent decision in Chatham & Aylesford to run a local Postal Primary.
