  • The candidates lists should be made available to constituency chairmen

    My understanding is that it is, and it has already had those people who genuinely aren’t planning to stand for one reason or another removed from it.

    As much as I like Ros, I am not entirely convinced that putting one individual (who is already very busy) in charge of organising the approval of candidates is a good idea. It not only opens her up to charges of favouritism when certain people do or don’t get approved, but everyone should be treated equally and in a more dispassionate manner. It isn’t quite as simple as saying we need to “make sure the prospective candidate is not going to embarrass the Party”

    I don’t understand why this has been such a problem for your friend though, as I know people who have gone through the process quite quickly. Maybe it’s just that your particular region isn’t very organised.

    Readers might also like to know that Rushcliffe advertised recently and although now closed would look at any late submissions.
