Change the voting system to proportional representation (PR)
We believe changing the voting system for all elections to PR will make elections fairer, as the number of seats won per party will more directly represent votes cast.
We believe First Past The Post (the current voting system) is extremely unfair. A good voting system should have the total number of seats gained be directly reflected by the total votes won. FPTP fails in this. This means that the party winning the most votes nationally is not even guaranteed to win any seats. We believe this is very undemocratic and many feel that their votes are wasted. Proportional representation systems should mean votes actually show the support for a party.
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.
