Iain McNicol, Labour’s General Secretary, Quits His Post

Iain McNicol, the General Secretary of the Labour Party, has confirmed that he is to stand down from his role. It is expected that a replacement more loyal to Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, will replace him. He will remain in his post until a replacement is appointed.

McNicol said in a statement:

“It’s been an absolute honour and a privilege to serve as general secretary of the Labour party. I have now decided to move on to pursue new challenges in the service of the Labour party and wider labour movement”.

Jeremy Corbyn said:

“I would like to personally thank Iain McNicol for his long and dedicated service to the Labour party”.
