Clearly the other possible criterion for supporting socialist candidates in elections is that they stand for an independent working-class, ie communist, program (or something like it).

But Ira isn't wrong: what is needed for genuinely independent class politics is for both criteria to be combined, ie the creation of a mass working-class socialist party with both a clear program and real influence in the labour movement and working-class communities, that can stand candidates accountable to itself. Our current campaign in Camberwell and Peckham is a small contribution to building such a party.
