Lisa Nandy makes final ballot in Labour leadership race

The Leaders Council of Great Britain & Northern Ireland has reported on Wednesday's news that Wigan MP Lisa Nandy has qualified for the final ballot in the race to succeed Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader.

Nandy has joined Sir Keir Starmer on the final ballot after Chinese for Labour endorsed her as their preferred candidate, meaning she had won the support of the three trade unions and affiliate groups required to progress.

Announcing Chinese for Labour’s endorsement, its chairwoman and Labour MP for Luton, Sarah Owen, said: "Only in power can Labour make the radical changes that are so desperately needed for our towns and communities.

"We believe that Lisa is the right candidate to take us there.”
