Who would make the best Labour Party leader?
Diane Abbott, MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, and the first black woman to be elected to Parliament, has joined the race for the Labour Party leadership. Who would you like to see as leader?
Ms Abbott says her bid is "serious" and she feels there is little between the other candidates, so she is standing to offer Labour a choice. There are five other candidates in the contest so far - David and Ed Miliband, Andy Burnham, Ed Balls and John McDonnell.
A host of senior Labour figures - including acting leader Harriet Harman, former Home Secretary Alan Johnson and prominent backbencher Jon Cruddas - have ruled themselves out.
The result of Labour's leadership election will be announced in September at the party conference, officials say.
Where does the Labour Party go from here? What do you think of the candidates? Who else should be in the running?
