Adopt 'One Member, One Vote' before the next Welsh Labour leadership election

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,500!

Please join us (Julie Morgan, Julie James, Jenny Rathbone and Jane Hutt) in calling for Welsh Labour to adopt 'One Member, One Vote' (OMOV) for all future elections – including the election of our next leader in Wales.

** We urgently need OMOV before the autumn when Carwyn Jones steps down.**

  • You may know that the recent deputy leadership election was conducted using the Electoral College system – so the winner had 7,709 votes but the runner up had 9,110 of all votes cast and 65% of the membership vote. 
  • The Electoral College system means that an MP or AM's vote is worth 400 times that of a member.

OMOV was used to elect Labour's UK leader Jeremy Corbyn and it is the only way, I believe, to give all members – including our many new members – a real say in the future of the party.

Please sign this petition to bring in OMOV and to hold the party Democracy Review as soon as possible – and before we elect Carwyn Jones' successor.
