Conservative South Suffolk MP Tim Yeo, as expected amongst the commentariat, will appeal his deselection by the Executive Committee of his local Conservative Association by opting to appeal to all members of the South Suffolk Tory party.

There will now be a full ballot of the local members with voting papers going out on 20th January. If there is a majority amongst the membership for Mr Yeo to be re-adopted as their candidate, the Executive Committee’s decision last month will become null and void and Mr Yeo will be re-selected as the Conservative candidate for South Suffolk at the next General Election in 2015.

However, should Tim Yeo lose the membership ballot, he could still decide to put his name forward once the local party begins proceeding to select a new candidate – but having been booted out twice by then, that is unlikely.
