Corbyn Plans May’s Ouster to End Britain’s System of inequality, Injustice
Islam Times - Britain’s opposition Labor party leader Jeremy Corbyn says he is planning to become the UK’s next prime minister by giving his grassroots supporters more control over the party.
Addressing the Labor women’s conference on Saturday, Corbyn said giving the grassroots a greater role would give him the power to replace Prime Minister Theresa May and ultimately change the “system of inequality and injustice” in the British society.
“Wide participation in policy-making leads to more support for the policies we get, leads us to that movement that will bring about the end of this government but – beyond that – the end of the system of inequality and injustice in our society,” the main opposition leader told his supporters.
Corbyn’s statements came days after his critical victory at National Executive Committee (NEC), Labor’s administrative body.
The NEC has already agreed to a number of proposals that would guarantee the presence of a left-wing candidate on the ballot once Corbyn steps down as the party’s leader.
The major changes, which will be reviewed during Labor’s national conference in Brighton on Sunday, included cutting down the parliamentary threshold for nominating a leader for the party from 15 percent to 10 percent. Labor now needs to win only seven seats from the Tories to give Corbyn the chance to form a ruling coalition.
Corbyn has been enjoying greater support within his party after overcoming a leadership challenge and successfully increasing his party's seats in the Parliament during a snap general election in June.
