Guest blog from David Gould, Bristol for Democracy Chair
We deserve a fair vote in all elections. The 2015 general election was the "most disproportionate in British history", and local council elections consistently give even more disproportionate results. The West of England Devolution deal will have huge impact on Bristol. We need to know what the next Mayor is going to do to stand up for democracy
Bristol for Democracy and Unlock Democracy have teamed up to ask all the candidates for Bristol Mayor their views on local and national democracy. We asked them:
- What is your position on the West of England Devolution deal and holding a West of England Mayor accountable?
- What will you do to promote devolution of the power of your Mayoral Office to the people of Bristol?
- And finally do you support proportional representation for local and/or national elections?
What did the candidates say?
