The ALP National Executive met today and has agreed to defer the 49th ALP National Conference due to COVID-19.
The National Conference was scheduled to meet in Canberra in December 2020. The National Executive has resolved to defer the National Conference until further notice.
The ALP National Conference is Australia’s largest political conference, and the National Executive regrets that the events of 2020 mean that it is simply not practical to go ahead this year.
Labor’s platform development process will continue as planned. A Consultation Draft of the ALP National Platform will be released to Labor Party members and affiliated unions later this year.
