The ABC brings word that next week’s Labor Party ACT branch annual general meeting is on hold after intervention by the party’s national executive.
The delay has been caused by the newly affiliated public servants union (the CPSU) appealing over the number of delegates to which they are entitled. Something that threatens to radically alter the balance of power within the party. It seems unlikely the CPSU is going to the trouble to appeal for LESS delegates.
The national executive is apparently also displeased over the price extracted from the sale of the licensed Labor Clubs, and something called “concerns over local branch administration” which might just have something to do with strange resignations of branch secretaries.
