Leftist Jeremy Corbyn is set to be re-elected head of Britain's opposition Labour Party Saturday despite a power struggle with his own MPs that threatens to tear apart the historic movement.Many Labour MPs say Corbyn's policies are too far to the left for Labour to have a chance at governing again.Corbyn has been in parliament since 1983 and was a staunch opponent of the party's New Labour prime minister Tony Blair, who won three elections.Following that June 23 vote, around 20 members of Labour's shadow cabinet resigned and 172 out of the party's 230 MPs backed a no confidence motion.Smith has accused his rival Corbyn of aiding an infiltration of the party by radical leftists, particularly through the new Momentum movement.Corbyn has said he wants to heal the party but that prospect appears unlikely after a summer of venom.
