Enable the recall of politicians found guilty of lying during an election

Petition Details

To restore trust in politics, politicians who knowingly use falsehoods to secure election should face recall. Waiting up to five years to remove them is not good enough.

Additional Information

The Government should make lying during an election campaign an offence, and anyone found guilty should be subject to recall.

This should help restore faith in the political system.
