Petition Action

Right to Recall

Additional Information

To introduce a Bill that gives citizens the right to recall their MP.

A recall petition must be signed by a sizeable number (to be determined by Parliament) of constituents and a completed petition should be sent to Parliament. Once the petition has been validated by Parliament then a recall referendum should be held in that constituency on as to whether the voters approve or disprove of the recall of their elected representative.

If the recall referendum returns a majority in favour of recall, then the Member of Parliament should be immediately removed from their position and a by-election called for an appropriate date in the near future.

Only eligible voters should have the ability to sign the recall petition or vote in the recall referendum.
