Ex-Council Leader lands national Labour role

Arooj Shah

Arooj Shah, who lost her council seat and Leadership role in controversial circumstances at the Oldham Metropolitan Borough elections last May, continues her rise up the ranks in the Labour Party.

Universally popular, and widely admired for her dedication, loyalty, hard work and pragmatism, Arooj has been appointed as Chair of the National Constitutional Committee (NCC).

Described as a ‘senior organ’ of the Labour Party, it is concerned with disciplinary matters.

Her Vice Chair, Peter Mason, welcomed her appointment in this way:

“Delighted that Arooj Shah was elected chair of the NCC earlier today.

“I’m confident she’ll bring the rigour we need to getting our house in order and further restoring our reputation.

“In my 7th year on the committee, pleased to be supporting her as the new Vice Chair”.

Arooj said about her appointment:

“Delighted to have been elected as Chair of the Labour Party’s National Constitutional Committee along with my friend, Peter Mason, as Vice Chair. Under Keir Starmer, Labour is facing the country and determined to give Britain its future back”.

Miss Shah is expected to return to the Oldham Council chamber in May, 2023. She has been selected by the Regional Labour Party to represent her home ward of St Mary’s.
