Left Unity 2017 Spring Conference

Timetable for discussion and submissions

Our 2016 national conference agreed to hold a spring members’ conference to develop party policy in the context of rapid political change and the need for a radical left response to the far-right surge. Conference also agreed that the party’s constitution should be amended in the light of our practical experience since foundation in 2013, and what will best facilitate the party’s work and democratic practice.

All members, branches and policy commissions are invited to participate in the conference and in the pre-conference discussion process.

Internal elections will run during the pre-conference discussion period, and the newly elected NC, announced at the end of March, will be in place for the conference.
