Our friends at Make Votes Matter have submitted a Parliamentary Petition calling for proportional representation. I encourage you to join me in signing the petition and ask your friends to do the same.
Liberal Democrats for Electoral Reform
Message from Joe at Make Votes Matter:
We need your help to get PR tabled for debate in the House of Commons. To make this happen, please sign and share the new, official Parliamentary petition calling for Proportional Representation.
As this petition is hosted by the Government’s official petition website, we can make sure it is debated by MPs if it receives over 100,000 signatures by April 2017. In just a few weeks it’s gathered more than 25% of the this target, but we need to keep signing and sharing to keep up the momentum.
With Liberal Democrats being joined in their support for PR by more and more MPs from Labour and even the Conservatives, this would be an ideal time to take this debate to the House of Commons. Securing a debate through a citizen-led petition is a great way to support these MPs by demonstrating broad public demand for electoral reform.
There are social media buttons on the petition page. Please use these to share the message with friends and contacts.
