The leadership of the Workers Party is to vote on a motion to seek affiliation to any new Jeremy Corbyn “coalition of the like-minded”.
The Workers Party is led by George Galloway, with former Labour MP Chris Williamson, Aslef Vice President Andy Hudd, and former Ambassador Peter Ford acting as Deputy Leaders.
The motion is to be tabled by George Galloway and presented to the party Members Council which meets in Birmingham on Saturday 20 January. The motion reaffirms the party commitment to avoiding unnecessary electoral clashes with other left groups, a proposal the Workers Party originally put to TUSC in 2022 and which remains in place.
The Workers Party has announced its own intention to stand in up to 50 seats in the forthcoming General Election, and George Galloway is the party candidate in the 2024 London Mayoral contest.
