Skipton and Ripon Labour Party makes nomination for party leader

Skipton and Ripon Labour Party has nominated Keir Starmer for the new leader of the Labour Party and Angela Rayner as deputy leader.

The nominations were made at a meeting in Ripon on February 4, 2020. It was attended by more than sixty members of the party from across the constituency, with some travelling from Skipton and Settle to take part. Members heard speeches in support of all four leadership contenders but in a secret ballot Keir Starmer won support of the majority present on the basis of first preferences alone.

Following the completion of the national nomination process later this month, ballot papers will go out to party members and the result of the election for leader and deputy will be announced in April.
