Petition Action

We need a new act of Parliament - Recall of Local Government Councillors.

Petition Details

Do you know there is no mechanism for constituents to remove a sitting local Councillor other than at the next election, in some cases waiting for 3 or more years. We need a new act of Parliament similar to Recall of MPs but this time Recall of Councillors. Please support.

Additional Information

I believe it is only fair that we treat and deal with Local Councillors in the same way as Members of Parliament. If they are not doing their job they should be removed and replaced with someone who will carry out the wishes of the people who voted them in. In some cases Local Government is the start of MP's political working life.
