The Electoral Commission has decided that the rules laid down by Parliament to protect the fairness of the referendum were deliberately and seriously breached. And that there was very significant overspending. The Government is a member of the Venice Commission which said, in its Code of Good Practice on Referendums, that: “if the cap on spending is exceeded by a significant margin, the vote must be annulled.” In the circumstances, we the undersigned do not believe the referendum result, a result won with cheating and law breaking, can be said to represent the will of the people in June 2016.
We call on the Government and the Opposition to set out what steps they will take in light of these findings.
We will present the signatures on this petition to the leader of the Government and the Opposition.
Please ask your MP to sign and promote this petition. And let us know, via [email protected] if she or he does.
This petition is promoted by Good Law Project Limited. If the petition gets to 100,000 signatories we will present it to Downing Street and ask for it to be debated in Parliament. We will always ask you if we wish to share your details with a third party and you can opt-out at any time.
