    The Jewish Labour Movement will elect a new chair at its annual general meeting next month, it has announced.

    The JLM, which is the only Jewish affiliate of the Labour Party, will hold its AGM on June 13.

    The election, which will be in a one member one vote format, will take place after a hustings and question and answer session for candidates.

    No potential candidates had been revealed by Wednesday. Nominations for the position close on May 23.

    Jeremy Newmark, the previous chair, resigned from the position in February, after the JC revealed an internal audit at the Jewish Leadership Council, where he was previously chief executive, had found he deceived the organisation out of tens of thousands of pounds and misled charities about the cost of projects he worked on.
