VOTE FOR AV AS A VOTE FOR CHANGE
Geoff Forse is the Green Party’s mayoral candidate and is also standing in Fosse in the local council elections in Leicester on May 5th. (1)
Geoff said: “I’m supporting a ‘Yes’ vote in the AV referendum on May 5th, because it will mean people can start to vote for what they really believe in.
“Alternative vote (AV) is not proportional and not the solution. But AV could challenge the main political parties to worker harder for votes and votes will not be wasted, unlike the current First-Past-the-Post voting system, which it may replace.”
He continued: “While some people maybe tempted to vote ‘No’ to help break the Tory-Lib Dem coalition, I think this referendum is more important than punishing Nick Clegg.”
Geoff finished: “I’m viewing AV as an opportunity to open up the process of bringing change in the political system to make it more democratic and eventually have a democratic written constitution. ”
