The election follows Isabelle Parasram’s new job, which means she has had to stand down from the role.
This is the first time the post will be elected by the party’s membership, rather than just by Federal Board members. Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard on getting that change through, especially Isabelle herself. It’s an important change that both reflects the priority the party gives this role and is a change that strengthens our internal party democracy.
