Do you support Electoral Reform?
I do and here's the reasons why
The excitement of the general election aside, it’s important to remember that there are other important elections coming up – ones that have gone largely under the national radar.
As well as important local elections in Scotland, Wales and much of England, the first ‘metro-mayors’ will be elected. Six new city-region mayors will be elected with wide-ranging powers over the local economy, transport – and in Greater Manchester even some parts of the NHS and welfare.
These new institutions represent the greatest change to the governance of England in decades. It is vitally important then, to think about how they will work as democratic institutions. The Electoral Reform Society has hence produced a new report, From City Hall to Citizens' Hall: Democracy, Diversity and English Devolution.
