Candidates backed by Momentum, CLPD and London Labour Left have won a resounding victory across the London Regional Board, formerly dominated by Labour First and Progress.
All but two spots on the committee were won by candidates backed by the grassroots group, with Unite activist Jim Kelly, and Cllr. Seema Chandwani being elevated to chair and vice-chair.
The important elections are a big win for Momentum, due to the Board's role in terms of local government selections and the shortlisting process for the Greater London Assembly and Westminster seats.
