Labour Party Democracy Review

Labour Party members have successfully pushed for a Labour Party Democracy Review which will be conducted in 2018 and look at a variety of issues related to how the Party operates and engages with its membership. Increasing diversity in political representation, improving local and regional structures, making better use of social media and making politics more accessible are just some of the topics it will cover.
People from across the party are invited to contribute.
The launch of the democracy review is a very welcome first step on the way to transforming the Labour Party into a truly open, inclusive, member-led Party. But it will only be a success if it has strong and sustained input from members. Momentum is launching a consultation with its members to make sure our members’ voices are heard and that Momentum’s input into the review is significant and truly member-led.
We’re overseeing a democratic process that will enable groups as well as individual members to generate ideas, debate and vote on key proposals which will make up Momentum’s submission to the review.
