The vote on a radical shake-up of the way Co-operative group is run is "a momentous and defining moment" for the group, Co-op chair Ursula Lidbetter said.
These reforms represent the final crucial step in delivering the change necessary to return the group to health. This will strengthen the society and enable us to move forward with the urgent work to rebuild the business and deliver on our renewed purpose, in the interests of all our colleagues and our millions of members and customers.
The changes to the group's governance were backed by its members following a landmark vote.
