Labour Leadership Briefing

The 2019 General Election saw the worst result for the Labour Party since 1935. In the aftermath, Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn announced his intention to stand down, with Labour’s ruling National Executive Committee setting a timetable of 4 April for electing his replacement.

In addition, with the departure of Deputy Leader Tom Watson prior to the General Election, party members choose his successor at the same time.

In this briefing, DeHavilland looks at the candidates running, their backgrounds, and assesses their key policy plans.
