    BillODrees is echoing what the activists are trying to promote – a democratising of the party. What they are failing to admit is it is a power grab by the unions, and there’s very dubious democratic processes involved in the whole power of affiliates (which are not a model of democracy) as they gain the deciding vote in decision making.

    The changes will allow members to vote for their leader. Now Labour can have an open “leadership” process.
    The members would relish an opportunity to choose between Cunliffe and Shearer/Robertson and whoever else want to take the responsibilities. Cunliffe is also a nice guy. It is now proven that Cunliffe is very very popular: that on top of his undoubted talent and ability to motivate large numbers of people.

    Labour leadership vote in a week?

    Labour leader David Shearer is moving to put his leadership to a caucus vote as early as next week in an attempt to end speculation about his position and draw out challenger David Cunliffe.

    Shearer was closeted away this morning preparing for his keynote speech this afternoon. But his lieutenants were meeting to consider ways a vote could be taken early under caucus rules.

    That would likely not replace the scheduled vote in February at which only 40 per cent of the caucus could trigger a run-off according to new uses approved by the Labour conference yesterday.

    But if the caucus gave him a strong endorsement, possibly in a vote that was made public, that could make the February vote more of a formality. No caucus meeting has been scheduled for Tuesday, but an urgent one may be called.

    It is understood if Shearer wins the backing of caucus he will move quickly to demote Cunliffe.

    One of his allies said Shearer had had “a guts full” of being undermined and he was planning to challenge Cunliffe to “either put up or shut up”.

    …so Cunliffe gets 41% and asks for a leadership contest, which he might win with the help of the unions. But I’ve still got 49% support, so WE ask for another leadership contest…lets see who has got the most stamina.

    RossM,

    Not likely to happen. The 40% threshold only applies to beginning of term and mid-term tests (I think just these two, not annually.). In order to have an unscheduled challenge, 50% is required.

    While mathematically possible, caucus members will think hard on how the general electorate is likely to perceive and respond to repeated challenges and is unlikely to immediately contest again.
