  • FIVE CANDIDATES MAKE IT THROUGH TO THE SECOND ROUND OF LABOURS LEADERSHIP CONTEST

    The Labour Party

    Emily Thornberry managed a narrow addition to the contest which will crown the next leader of the Labour Party after she scraped past the threshold of 22 backers will less than 10 minutes to spare.

    This now puts her in the race alongside rivals Sir Keir Starmer, Rebecca Long Bailey, Lisa Nandy and Jess Phillips who are all seeking to become leader, however, she may have tough competition as Sir Keir stormed through with 89 nominations ahead of his closest rivals Salford MP Rebecca Long Bailey on 33 and surprise star of the leadership race - Wigan MP Lisa Nandy who was not too far behind with 31 after giving a blistering speech in the house of commons hustings last week.

    It was thought that Thornberry would not make it onto the ballot but she was gifted a miracle after Clive Lewis stepped down from the race allowing her to pick up the nominations needed to see her put through.

    The candidates will now seek nominations from their respective CLPs and affiliate's over the coming month starting on Wednesday 15th Jan, before the parties full ballot is opened on the 21st of Feb until the 2nd of April.

    The winner will be crowned at a special conference on Saturday the 4th of April.
