Make it easier to deselect MPs, says Corbyn ally Mark Serwotka
Union leader who rejoined Labour has called for ‘no obstacles’ to be put in way of local members choosing a new MP
The leader of the UK’s fifth-biggest union who has recently rejoined the Labour party after a 25-year absence has called for activists to be allowed to democratically unseat their MPs.
Mark Serwotka, the head of the radical Public and Commercial Services (PCS) union and a close associate of Jeremy Corbyn, said that upcoming boundary changes will give thousands of new members an opportunity to change their parliamentary representatives. He called for “no obstacles” to be put in their way if they wish to choose a new MP.
Serwotka’s comments will alarm some on the right of the party who have sought assurances that Corbyn’s supporters are not preparing to use the boundary commission’s changes to get rid of the Labour leader’s critics.
