Have a referendum to propose a new electoral system based on proportionality.
The Parliament should allow a referendum that proposes a new electoral system based on representative proportionality, eliminating the FPTP.
If the outcome is in favour, an independent commission selects a proportional representative system based on existing models in other countries.
The current FPTP system does not provide appropriate representation at Parliament of the people of the UK.
It creates a very strong party politics system of which the opposition cannot properly question or propose changes that are apt for a democratic and representative country.
As an example, the current Parliament has the Conservatives in majority of 80 against the opposition, while the last general election show that this was backed by 43% of the people, this not representative.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
