Dissenters pushed out of 1922 committee
The chair of the 1922 Committee has admitted the elections to its executive were "bad-tempered" but insisted the group now represents a "real spectrum" of Conservative opinion.
The elections saw a string of 2010 intake MPs take posts on the executive, in what has been viewed as a victory for the modernising wing of the Conservative Party.
Graham Brady told the BBC's Daily Politics show: "I think the campaign was too factional, and occasionally bad-tempered, and I think sometimes colleagues didn’t show the respect for each other that I would like to see."
But he added: "I hope that now we’ve had an election - which was very well conducted yesterday, very good-humoured on the day, and as a result we have a very good spectrum of Conservative opinion on the executive of the 1922 Committee – I hope we’ll move on from that and be very civilised and treat each other with respect."
In a victory for the modernising 301 group of MPs, key posts were taken by Karen Bradley, George Eustice and George Hollingbery.
Right-winger Nick de Bois was elected to one of the positions of secretary, while Bernard Jenkin, Steve Baker and Heather Wheeler were all elected on a No Turning Back Group slate.
Moderniser Charlie Elphicke failed to get elected, but rightwing stalwart Christopher Chope also missed out on a position.
