The FVVRA Pledge
The Free Vote Voluntary Recall Alliance Pledge (FVVRA)
As a candidate standing for election to the Westminster Parliament on 8th June 2017,
I herby give this pledge on my word of honour to the voters of my constituency and to the people of our United Kingdom.
I pledge that as your Member of Parliament. I will pursue the aims and policies presented to the voters in my personal manifesto. I will maintain a continuous review of these policies in light of any change of circumstances that will affect their viability or desirability during the Parliamentary term. I will inform my constituents of any change in my support for any of these policies. I will work diligently to advance the interests of the people of my constituency, my region and my country and I affirm and promise that all of my voting decisions in the Westminster Parliament will be cast as a Free Vote and I will only abstain from voting as dictated by my own conscience and mature judgment.
I confirm that as your Member of Parliament, I will be guided by the Seven Principles of Public Life "selflessness, accountability, objectivity, integrity, honesty, openness and leadership", as drawn up by the Nolan Committee and endorsed by parliament. I also confirm that I will always represent the interests of my constituents and my country above the interests of my party, the Executive or any self interest groups of Lobbyists or Special Advisers who may exist inside or outside of parliament.
I confirm that if called upon to do so, I am willing to serve in a unified cross party National Government dedicated to serve all of our people. I agree that the leader of that National Government should be elected by a majority of all elected MP’s after the election.
I also confirm that I will accept that voters have called for the formation of a National Government if the majority of MP’s elected have signed this pledge.
Wide divisions have now been created in our country by the slender majority that has decided the result of EU Advisory Referendum.I agree that the aim of our National Government should be, to negotiate a reciprocal agreement that addresses the concerns of our United Kingdom and those of the countries of the European Union. I further agree that all members of Parliament should have a vote on any resulting agreement, be that to leave the European Union or to remain inside the European Union.
I will expect to be personally judged as your Member of Parliament on my voting decisions in Parliament, my service to my constituency, region and country and my adherence to the "Seven Principals of Public Life". If at any time, I am presented with verifiable evidence that I have broken this pledge to my constituents, I will resign my post as your Member of Parliament and initiate a new constituency election.
Having agreed to this the FVVRA Pledge myself, I will support the right of any other prospective Member of Parliament or present Member of Parliament to adopt and make this pledge to the people of our United Kingdom.
