- Democratic Party
- United States of America
With the 2016 election coming to it's final stretch the nominees have been selected by both parties. Both nominees of each of the major political parties have been controversial to say the least. One nominee in specific has taken a large amount of criticism: democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Now to be specific, with recent Wikileaks leaking of DNC emails showing that the party had virtually rigged the primaries in favor of Secretary Clinton. This has led to a large debate among the democratic party members. The major point being the use of super delegates (un-electeded delegates who are free to support any candidate for the presidential nomination at the party's national convention). The reason this is so controversial is that if there were no super delegates, Sen. Bernie Sanders would have more likely been the party's nominee by the popular vote.
So I am proposing a removal of the super delegate title in the democratic party in hopes of future elections being a fair and just representation of the people's will.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Democratic National Committee to eliminate the use of super delegates in the selection of candidates in electoral primaries.
