(JNS) The British Labour Party is prepared to expel more than 1,000 members who have denied claims of antisemitism within the party, according to The Jewish Chronicle.

Labour’s ruling body, the National Executive Committee (NEC), will vote to expel four groups that promote communism and refuse claims of antisemitism in the party. The groups—Labour Against the Witch Hunt, Socialist Appeal, Labour in Exile and Resist—also support former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and welcome members who have been expelled or suspended from the party over antisemitism allegations.

Anyone found to be a member of the groups will be banned from the party, reported The Jewish Chronicle. The vote is expected to pass with more than 1,000 Labour members facing expulsion.
