Seema was first elected to the National Labour CAC in 2017 topping the ballot with a staggering 109,763 votes.
It was victory that rocked the establishment as a working class woman from a Tottenham Council Estate saw off a Lord and a high profile MP.
From her first meeting, she began to transform a once opaque committee to a body which has become interactive with the membership.
She pushed for more rights for Disabled delegates. She introduced the Conference Charity. She enabled a more open and accountable appeals process. She’s worked hard to increase representation from Scotland. She’s pushed for diversity monitoring. She set up a CLP Secs hotline on Facebook.
She’s visible, present and accountable.
She’s unashamedly fair, driven by her passion for transparent democratic process. Clear her role is to represent all members regardless of their political allegiances, she is widely respected across the spectrum of the party for her objective push to stick to the rules.
She enters this CAC election with an amazing 169 nominations, increasing her 2017 numbers demonstrating support and appreciation for her hard work has grown.
