Rejected petition Call automatic by-election if MP leaves the party he/she was originally elected.

It has become apparent the MP's now seem to pass from one party to another at will. During an election the constituency votes to elect MP's based on andidate but also based on the party they represent on its manifestos. MP's that leave the party for whatever reason deselection must take place.

More details

I draw your attention to defectors from different parties either forming new parties or joining parties not elected in there constituency.
