Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Structures within the Parties vary, and these will differ from the structure of the political system ie Parliament.  British politics is democratic but inside the party system it can be a whole different picture.

You vote for your Presidential candidates in the US in a way we don't do here - we (party members) vote for our candidates to stand as MPs and Assembly Members but we don't vote for who should be Prime Minister or Leader of the Party.  

Local councillors are selected by panels of party officers at constituency level.

I understand the Presidential candidate voting within US parties but do members vote for senator candidates too or are they selected?
