Labour’s Rules, yes my life is a bit obsessive, has a section called Scope of Rules, Ch 1.X. This states that the Rules apply to all party units and limits the NEC’s powers to vary the rules. They may not vary the aims and objectives, conditions of membership (inc. affiliates), selection procedures, or change the relationship between CLPs and the Party.

It permits local rules, and defines the NEC’s power of interpretation. It does not require the rules to be published to all members. 😣

    When I first posted this, I was interested in my local council selections, but I am hearing stories of partisan variations of the parliamentary selection guidelines on the authority of Regional Officers or even NEC representatives. This is not allowed!
