Last week the results of the elections for positions within the English Party were emailed to members of the English Council.
Given that for all of these positions, with the exception of the role of representative to the Federal Executive, the number of nominations matched or were less than the places available, all candidates were elected unopposed.
The results were as follows:
Chair of the English Party – Peter Ellis has been re-elected Chair unopposed.
Chair of the English Candidates Committee – Margaret Joachim has been re-elected Chair unopposed.
Representative to the Federal Conference Committee and to the Federal Policy Committee – Geoff Payne has been re-elected unopposed
Members of the English Council Executive – Steve Jarvis, Geoff Payne, Dawn Davidson, Anders Hanson, Mike Wheatley, Neil Walton, Stan Collins, Jeanette Crossland, Darren Briddock, Paul Clark, Tahir Maher, Brian Orrell
Members of the English Candidates Committee – Dawn Davidson, Darren Briddock, Jenny Pinkett (Two places remain unfilled)
There will be a contested election for the position of representative to the Federal Executive between Jonathan Webber and Brian Orrell. The ballot will be open to members of the English Council and will close on Wednesday 7th November.
