GREEN LEFT RECOMMENDATIONS for Green Party Spring Conference Prioritisation Ballot vote before 3rd February

 


Green Party Spring Conference will be held in Birmingham on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th March 2023!

 

With Spring Conference nearing, the Prioritisation Ballot has opened for 2 weeks, closing on the 3rd February at 23:59. we have produced some advice on voting.

 

Our recommendations are below, the most effective way to vote is to rank all motions in the ballot.

 

When you rank things highly, it gives them extra weight in the overall calculation. Similarly, when you rank things low, it helps produce a lower position in the final order than would have been the case if you hadn’t ranked them at all. For this reason, it is important to produce an exhaustive ranking of all motions in each category. If you rank only your top preferences, you miss the opportunity for your wishes to count on those motions that should be lowest in the pecking order.”

We leave it up to you how exactly you rank our recommended and non-recommended motions, and how you rank those ‘middle’ motions where we have not expressed a view.

D motions - - Rank highly!

 

D18 Enabling the Disability Group to Fulfil Its Role in the Party

D03 Extra Electoral Campaigns Strategy

D08 Revision to Constitution Requirement for Campaigns Committee

D14 Campaign Against the Coronation of King Charles III

D25 Toolkit for Healing Divisions within the Green Party

 

D motions - Rank low

 

D01 Conference Reform Amendment to Standing Orders for Conduct of Conference (SOCC)

D05 Green World Motion

D07 Reduce the Size of Green Party Executive (GPEx)

D16 Eliminate External Influence on GPEW Internal Elections 61

D21 Grow Green Party Regional Council (GPRC) and make it the Core of the Party’s Politics

OoO7 Motion to Split SOC into Two Independent Parts

E motions - - Rank highly!

E11 - Solidarity with protestors in Iran

 E01 Composited IPP Motions

E03 Declining Quality of Rivers and Coastal Waters

E08 New Deal for Carers

Prioritisation Ballot here!

The link to the prioritisation ballot is via the member's website, so you must be logged in to access it.
