How should council group leaders be elected?

Following up on the piece I wrote for Liberal Review querying whether only councillors should have a say in the election of council group leaders (after all, party leaders aren’t elected just by MPs) – London Region have put a discussion on the agenda for the regional conference coming up in a few weeks. Should make for an interesting debate – especially as lots of councillors normally attend!

  1. I didn’t comment on the original article, but having had some time to digest it I’ve really taken the idea to heart – I think the benefits of having truly engaged local party members electing their group leader more than outweigh the supposed drawbacks.Should be interesting indeed!
