There is a lot of misinformation & DISinformation going around about #TriggerBallot’s
Labour members can for the first time, choose to have a full democratic selection process for the candidate representing their local constituency at the next election
#DemocracyMeansYOU
#TriggerBallot‘s are about #DemocraticAccountability (NOT ‘deselection’ - but #FullSelection)

Having a democratic representative of a local group or organisation periodically stand for #Reselection is a basic democratic principle - it is not contentious
#TriggerBallot is a two step process:
1) a meeting is called to vote on whether members want to automatically reselect their existing MP or whether members want to have a #FullSelection process INCLUDING their existing MP and other candidates to chose their next GE candidate
2) if members vote for #FullSelection then a second meeting is called after additional candidates come forward to decide who the members wish to chose as their candidate for the next GE

Asking our representatives to stand against other candidates is a basic democratic principle
