EXCLUSIVE: Duffy Won't Restand - CF Region 'Door Open' to Leadership Contenders.

ISAAC DUFFY has "privately" announced his decision not to re-stand for North East Conservative Future (NECF) Chairman in any forthcoming internal party elections, according to sources that work closely with NECF, this website can exclusively disclose.

The favourite, Kevin Wilson, resigned as Deputy Chairman last week, which apparently "Leaves the door open". This is apparently an interesting situation as "whoever replaces Kevin Wilson as Deputy Chairman may give a clue as to who is going to be the next Chairman", say insiders.

Grace Hanson-Eden is name many are associating with the top job but she allegedly has significant reservations and inside sources are saying that she will not stand, TBG can reveal.

An NECF source who wises to remain anonymous told TBG: "Josh Morgan and Elliot Barker may be the dark horses in this election. Josh, who is Area Chairman for Durham, is certainly a contender. Elliot, who is Hexham CF Chairman as well as CPF Chairman (and previously Social Action Officer), is also a credible contender following a very successful time at Hexham CF."
