For Real Democracy NZ Inc’s secondary objective: The reform of parliament.

 

BCIR WILL PROVIDE THE PEOPLE WITH THE MEANS TO REGAIN CONTROL OF THEIR DEMOCRACY AND A WAY TO COMPLETE THE HISTORIC MOVEMENT TOWARDS BOTH DIRECT AND FULL DEMOCRACY

Once BCIR has been achieved it could be used to introduce parliamentary reform. Subject to the people's will, reforms might include:

 

Ending the whipping system and caucus solidarity conventions that effectively deny MP’s the right to seek and represent the will of their electorate.

Reducing the number of MP’s.

Re-establishing the Upper House as a check on government actions.

Requiring the executive to be elected by secret ballot from all MPs, not just the majority party.

Limiting the number of consecutive years a person may spend in parliament.

Introducing the ‘recall’ – an electorate's right to sack a poorly performing MP and hold a by-election.

Limiting MP benefits to their time as people’s representatives.
