It has already been confirmed that Jeremy Corbyn will resign as the leader of the Labour Party after his devastating defeat in December’s parliamentary elections.

The Conservatives won a clear and convincing majority, while Labour suffered its worst electoral result in more than 80 years.

Corbyn’s announcement that he will leave his posts is therefore not a surprise, but it has opened an interesting race to become the next leader of the Labour Party.

Whispers over the different potential candidates have already hit the rumour-mill, but only Clive Lewis, Lisa Nanda, Jess Phillips and Emily Thornberry have announced themselves as official candidates. However, that is mainly a technicality, as others are expected to follow shortly.

Keir Starmer is the early favourite at 8/11 with Betfred.

Starmer made his name as Shadow Home Office minister and Shadow Brexit Secretary under Jeremy Corbyn’s leadership, although he resigned from the former position in protest against Corbyn’s leadership. Starmer is seen by many as a fresh candidate who could inject renewed energy into a stalled Labour Party.

Jess Phillips announced her candidacy on January 2nd, pledging to ‘speak truth to power’ and pledging that ‘politics needs honest voices’. Phillip’s popularity within the Labour Party and the general population has been growing in recent years, and many now consider her a probable outsider for the leadership role.

She has also criticised the Corbyn leadership for its handling of anti-semitism within the party. At 38, Phillips is the youngest candidate to enter the race. 

There is still no official timeline for the leadership election, but it will take place within the coming months.

Bets on the next Labour leader are accepted until 00:00 on 28 March 2019.
