Nominations for the positions of chairmen of election committees on education and transport are open – FE News


The Speaker announced the schedule for the election of the chairmen of the education and transport commissions.

Vacancies appear after the appointment of committee chairmen to positions in the government and their subsequent resignation. Robert Halfon MP has been appointed Minister of State at the Department for Education, while Hugh Merriman MP will take over as Minister of State at the Department for Transport.

Chairmen of election commissions are distributed depending on the party. By the resolution of the House of Representatives dated January 16, 2020, the heads of these committees were appointed by the Conservative Party. Only a member of the Conservative Party can stand for election, although all MPs can vote in the election process.

Nominations are open and will close at noon on Tuesday, November 15. If there is only one candidate, the Speaker is likely to announce the results on the same day. If more than one nomination is received, voting will take place on Wednesday, November 16. The speaker will announce the results in the hall later that day.

Candidates need 15 signatures from their party to be nominated. Valid nominations received on meeting days will be printed in the Chamber’s business papers the following day. They will also be published on Parliament’s website, along with the candidate’s statement of support, signatories and any declared interests.
