This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Hold a referendum on electoral reform with the format used in New Zealand.
A majority of the country believes that 37% of the vote should not give a party control of parliament.
The alternative vote referendum did not represent real electoral reform and was plagued with misinformation.
We deserve the chance to decide which voting system we want to use.
In 1992 New Zealand held a referendum in which the voted overwhelmingly to get rid of the first past the post system.
After this first vote a second was held to decide which new system to adopt out of a range of options which ensured more proportional representation.
