Candidate Declarations Form 2021

The NEC has a responsibility to ensure Labour Party candidates meet the highest standards. In order to ensure such standards are met, the NEC has agreed that all candidates for the elections must complete the updated probity declarations below.
Please read the information below carefully and ensure you submit your updated declaration no later than 17.00, Friday 5 March.

Failure to make a submission by this date will result in you not being certified as a Labour Party candidate by the Party’s nominating officer.

The Labour Party welcomes candidates from a diverse range of backgrounds and recognises that some candidates may have issues in their background which prevent them agreeing to each point in the declarations below. Not being able to make such declarations does not automatically disbar you from being a candidate, but it is very important that all relevant issues are brought to the attention of the NEC. If you would like to raise an issue in confidence prior to making a declaration you can do so by speaking to your regional office
