Our primary goals are to introduce:

  • Spontaneous Democracy through jury-moderated petitions:
    • to allow a constituency to spontaneously dismiss its MP
    • to trigger referendums on issues neglected by Parliament
  • Local Autonomy – entrenched through integration between different levels of representation (to prevent higher levels of authority taking power on issues that are essentially local)
  • Ranked voting in all elections rather than ‘first past the post’
  • Coherent Law – A requirement that laws be consistent, where possible, with generally accepted, uncontentious principles (such as equality of opportunity)

Please click on the links above for more information on why we believe these reforms are necessary, how we anticipate them operating and how we hope to bring them into law.

These reforms constitute Local Sovereignty’s core purpose and (like our secondary goals) they are not open to being dropped, added to or significantly amended by the party’s members against the wishes of the party’s founders and original members. *
