Give Voters the Right to Recall Majlis Members
Petition Background (Preamble):
Forgetting the fact that we the people of this country voted for a presidential system of governance in the last referendum, the MPs started awarding themselves, powers given actually to the executive. It is time we change the electoral law to force MPs to seek vote of confidence through a constituency recall mechanism if they have been found guilty of unacceptable behaviour.
In the light of current political chaos and other ongoing outrages committed by Majlis Members, we demand the right for voters to be given the power to sack MPs by signing a petition to "recall" them.
MPs should be forced to seek immediate re-election if ten per cent of constituents sign up to the demand.
