|At our CLP Meeting on Thursday 29th October 2020 we passed a motion, by majority vote, in favour of electoral reform.
Tewkesbury Constituency Labour Party resolves:
• To call upon the Labour Party to reject First Past the Post, the voting system
currently used for General Elections, and to support the introduction of a form
of Proportional Representation in which all votes count equally and seats
• To call upon the Justice and Home Affairs Policy Commission of the National
Policy Forum to consult the party membership specifically about their views
on Proportional Representation in the next cycle of policy documents.
• To offer political education on this issue using the expertise in Make Votes
Matter, Labour Campaign for Electoral Reform and Labour for a New
Democracy so that members can make an informed decision.
• To call upon the Labour Party to set out how it will select a new proportional
voting system for general elections, in time to offer it as a concrete alternative
to First Past the Post in our next manifesto and to ensure that any system
offered is proportional and not merely majoritarian.
This motion was proposed by Sue Sturgeon and seconded by Martyn Hansen
