Portugal Branch 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 match votes.

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 call upon the Labour Party to set out how it will select a new, proportional voting system for general elections, in time to offer as a concrete alternative to First Past the Post in our next manifesto.

Proposed by Anne Greenslade
Seconded by Malcolm Millais

carried unanimously at branch meeting 13th September 2020

Referring to: Justice and Home Affairs

The Justice and Home Affairs Policy Commission examines Labour thinking on issues such as policing, the justice system, immigration and asylum, and political and constitutional reform.
