The e-petition process be changed to allow people to vote against a proposal.
A proposal could receive a significant number of votes and yet not represent the opinion of the majority, such as a call for the return of Capital Punishment. The ability to show dissent at the time of the petition would give a clearer indication of the popularity or otherwise of a proposal, and greater justification for it being debated.
You can't sign this petition because it was rejected. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!
The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:
There's already a petition about this issue. We cannot accept a new petition when we already have one about a very similar issue.
You are more likely to get action on this issue if you sign and share a single petition.
