Westminster North Conservatives Say No2AV

On May 5th there will be a nationwide referendum asking the public whether they want to replace our current voting system (sometimes known as First Past the Post) with the so called ‘Alternative Vote’ (AV).The Conservative Party favours keeping the present system. We will be fighting strongly for a No vote. The Prime Minister has said AV would mean “a voting system that is unfair, processes that are unclear and politics that is unaccountable. It is, put simply, the precise opposite of what we need right now.”
