This petition was submitted during the 2015–2017 Conservative government
Petition Create a Proportional Representation system for UK General Elections.
The first past the post system is out of date now that there are far more than 2 parties in General Elections and the outcome of a PR system will reflect a fair democratic society rather than one that has a concerning amount of voters disillusioned with the UK Government's version of democracy.
34% of registered voters didn't vote in the last 2 UK General Elections.
In 2005 it was 38%. That's almost as many as the Labour and Conservative vote combined!
The UK's single-party governments are elected by less than a quarter of registered voters.
We need a PR system to give us better democracy to remedy the demoralised non voters as they feel there votes won't count in an undemocratic first past the post system.
