Petitioning Labour Party MPs and 1 other

We call upon Labour MPs to nominate Jeremy Corbyn as a leadership candidate to ensure party members and affiliated supporters have the opportunity to hear anti-austerity views and the chance to signal their support for an anti austerity policy.

The requirement to have 35 MPs nominating candidates in order to enable them to appear on the ballot assumes that the MPs fully reflect the make-up of the party. In the absence of any other way of getting onto the ballot, such as nomination by 5,000 party members or 100 CLPs for example, we see it as essential that the MPs open up the field as widely as possible on our behalf. We ask this simply so that a section of the party is not cut out totally from this process, rather than in the expectation of victory. It is very important that the party discuss the possibility that anti-austerity might be the way forward for our party and our people.

We therefore petition Labour MPs to ensure that 35 of them nominate Jeremy Corbyn and allow full discussion of the anti-war anti-austerity wing of the party.
