Full Democracy

The idea of inherited power in a modern democracy is immoral and out of date.

 

We should have a Head of State who is elected by the people (s)he is to represent and lead. Serving a fixed term of 3 – 5 years.

 

The Head of State would be able to dissolve parliament, call on the winner of an election to form a Government and dismiss the Prime Minister.

 

Bills would be signed into law by the president who would have clear rights of veto.

 

The President would take on the ceremonial responsibilities of the current Head of State where it is appropriate for them to continue.

 

 

Their role should be clearly laid down in a written constitution that is controlled by the people. Need, say, a two thirds majority vote to change. Control of the constitution should not rest in the hands of Parliament. Both Houses of which are 100% elected.

Hello, Dear Contributors

 

Welcome to the refining stage! In the next 2 weeks, we are looking forward to working with you, in order to refine selected ideas and produce concise final propositions based on these ideas. 

For this purpose, Head of State facilitators would like to remind you of the new features available to every contributor at this stage. Now, you can add, amend or withdraw votes already cast. This would be very important for us to see which ideas truly reflected your preferences, and to ensure that your preferences are represented fairly. 

Also, in the selected ideas, many overlap with others. Please use your judgment when choosing and voting on the ideas that are truly representative of your views.

 

Best,

Robin

Head of State Team
