A People's Parliament
E-petitions should be debated in a deliberative forum randomly-selected by lot from the electoral role (a process known as sortition). Such a body would better represent the nation than political parties. Elected members (and government ministers) would act as advocates, arguing for or against the e-proposal, but the final vote would be in the hands of the allotted members. Successful e-petitions would become the basis of parliamentary bills.
You can't sign this petition because it is now closed. But you can still comment on it here at Repetition.me!
