UK’s Labour readmits Corbyn after brief suspension

London: Britain's main opposition Labour party reinstated former leader Jeremy Corbyn on Tuesday, just weeks after he was suspended over his response to a damning watchdog report about anti-Semitism within the party.

The disputes panel of Labour's ruling National Executive Committee met on Tuesday and decided the veteran leftist could be readmitted, numerous UK media outlets reported.

Corbyn said on Twitter he was "pleased" with the outcome.

"Our movement must now come together to oppose and defeat this deeply damaging Conservative government," he added. - AFP �����������������������������������������������������������������������Z �Z ����������
