Councilors who are suspended from their party should be suspended from councils as well!
This petition had 1,013 supporters
The recent scandal involving Aberdeen City Council, where nine Labour councilors were suspended from their party after defying party leadership has highlighted a major flaw in the system where by those suspended from their party continue in their roles as councilors as Independents. This is undemocratic, as the electorate are not getting the council in which they have voted for. Aberdeen did not vote for an Independent/Conservative council coalition.
This petition requests that all councilors who defy their own party leadership resulting in suspension from their party, should automatically result in the suspension in their role as councilors, triggering a council by-election.
