A PARTY OF DEMOCRACY
The National Front is a party of genuine democracy which belongs to its members and whose policy is determined by its members. Its governing body is the National Directorate which is an elected body and which elects from within its ranks a Chairman, Deputy Chairman and other national party officers. The policies of the party are determined by the members at Annual Conferences and unlike some other parties, such decisions are binding upon the party.
The National Front seeks to promote in Britain a genuinely democratic political system and advocates a fairer electoral system which includes an aspect of proportional representation. In government the National Front would like to see an increase in the powers of the House of Commons Select Committees. The National Front can see no virtue in the powers granted to hereditary peers by accident of birth and consequently hereditary peerages would be abolished. It would however maintain a second chamber as an advisory and consultative body.
The National Front upholds the principle of a constitutional monarchy as this is clearly the wish of the overwhelming majority of the British people. We believe that the monarchy could again become an important symbol as a family and of the continuity of the nation.
The National Front would introduce a bill of rights to guarantee certain basic freedoms. It would also re-assert the sovereignty of Parliament by withdrawing from the oppressive European Union. Wherever possible decision-making would be brought closer to the people and as many decisions as possible would be made at local rather than national level.
