Diane Abbott to quit shadow cabinet when new Labour leader is elected

Diane Abbott to quit shadow cabinet when new Labour leader is elected

Diane Abbott will not be in the next shadow cabinet (Picture: sky)

Diane Abbott has announced she will not be part of the next shadow cabinet.

The Shadow Home Secretary said today she will be stepping down when a new Labour leader is elected in April.

The final three candidates fighting for the leadership are Rebecca Long-Bailey, Sir Keir Starmer and Lisa Nandy.

Abbott, the MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, told Sky’s Sophy Ridge on Sunday: I will be stepping down because I think that the new leader, whether its Becky, whether its Lisa, whether its Keir, they have to be able to construct their own Shadow Cabinet.

I was a backbencher for a few years and theres an awful lot to do on the backbenches.

One of the things that I will want to do is make sure we do not make a swerve to the right on migration policy.

Abbot is a key ally of current Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn who announced he was stepping down after last Decembers disastrous general election results that saw the Conservatives win a majority in the House of Commons.

Nandy, Long-Bailey and Sir Keir have nearly six weeks left to win their votes.

The three contenders are to face the last hustings before the ballot opens for members and supporters on Monday.

In recent days shadow business secretary, Long-Bailey has highlighted her plan to kick off a council house ‘building boom’ to solve the housing crisis.

Ms Nandy vowed to rein in credit scoring agencies, which the Wigan MP blamed for increasing the cost of being poor.

Mr Corbyn’s successor is set to be named on April 4.
