Mayoral Referendum Right

295 of 500 signatures

Bristol is the only part of England that can never change the way it chooses to govern itself. Where as other parts of the country can choose whether to have an elected mayor, a cabinet of councillors or other ways to govern Bristol has had this right removed following the introduction of the role of Elected Mayor. We believe that is wrong and are calling on the Government to support a change to allow the residents of Bristol to determine their future, just as any other part of the country can.

 We call on you to grant the citizens of the City and County of Bristol the right to demand a local referendum on whether to retain or abolish the post of elected Mayor.
