GOVERERNANCE OF UK VOTING REVIEW

image The Government has today published a review of voting systems which examines the experiences of the different forms of elections introduced over the last ten years in the UK.  This major review assesses elections to the Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly and Northern Ireland Assembly, and those to the European Parliament, London Assembly and London Mayor, as well as some international experiences.

The Minister of State at the Ministry of Justice, said: ""..the current voting system for UK general elections works well, and any future change would require the consent of the British people in a referendum. Voting systems must not become a focus of partisan action but need to endure for many years."
