Former Labour Party leader, Jeremy Corbyn has been suspended from the party and withheld from participating in any party Activities, Oyogist.com learnt.
Mr Corbyn had earlier reacted to a comment about antisemitism saying that the number of complaints made during his tenure were “dramatically overstated for political reasons”.
While reacting to his suspension,Mr Corbyn said he would not quit Labour, adding that he is “proud to be a member of the Labour Party”, which he joined when he was 16, and said: “I’ve fought racism all my life, and I’ll fight racism for the rest of my life.”
“I’ve made absolutely clear those who deny there has been an antisemitism problem in the Labour Party are wrong.
“It’s also undeniable that a false impression has been created of the number of members accused of antisemitism, as polling shows: that is what has been overstated, not the seriousness of the problem.
“I will continue to support a zero tolerance policy towards all forms of racism. And I urge all members to stay calm and focused – while this problem is resolved amicably, as I believe it will be – to defeat this awful government, which is further impoverishing the poorest in society.” Corbyn said.
