The next step for Democracy.
Who We Are - The Objective
Enact is a political party looking to modernize the democratic system of the United Kingdom by empowering citizens to make a direct impact on the issues that matter to them.
Our voting system is designed to fit seamlessly with existing government policies and procedures.
Once implemented, the system allows you, the people, to determine the laws and changes you see fit. Together we can take the steps needed to build a more robust and trusted system of governance, without sacrificing the brilliant things we already have in our country.
We plan to stand candidates in all 650 electoral seats. Having Enact as an option on the ballot paper will improve our nations politics and very importantly, give voters a unique opportunity that has never existed before. How will this be done? With modern technology we are now in the position to make and register our own political choices, decentralizing decisions and reducing our reliance on representatives.
Enact is unique in that it has no political ideology. We have no traditional "manifesto" proposing only to change how we decide and implement policy: We are the enabling system which allows you to influence what happens and create the Country you wish to see.
Basic Framework For The Voting System
Petition: Sign issues and laws you wish to change or remedy.
Proposal: Choose your favourite proposal to fulfill the petition.
Policy: Vote between the top proposal vs No change.
How You Can Help

Please, follow us on Twitter and other social channels and tell people about us.
It's not so bad now
Perhaps you say this change is unnecessary perhaps its good now, or was better then.
While we have had many years of prosperity (as a whole) there is currently a malaise a disbelief that certain things could not possibly happen to us that have happened to others before. We are however fundamentally the same as those before nothing is stopping the mistakes of the past being repeated in new guises.
A strong argument in favour of an Enact type system is that it reduces the chance of many forms of nonsensical policy. Whole governments or enough of its members may be swayed by x or y business, campaign group or the latest social technology.
A nation taken as a whole sets it apart from such influences. Everyone sees, meets, watches and reads different things and talk to different people. Each individual has a unique perspective to bring to the whole.
Getting Enact voted in
As Enact grows MP's and candidates will be campaigning and staying personally politically agnostic while putting forward the system, how it can improve on now and building the Enact network. The skills they need will be very different from the traditional role able to work with everyone, manage and oversee the setting up of Enact and once implemented then the day to day running.
An MP voted in but without an Enact Parliamentary majority will take direction from their constituents on how to vote in parliament and other areas where MP's make decisions. As more Enact MP's get elected the voters from each constituency will merge together creating a growing block, any local votes will stay separated into respective areas. With every Enact MP comes more direct influence over proceedings in parliament, more influence in creating and changing law ultimately leading to a majority Enact government that will finalize the system.
How could this make things better?
- Fundamentally, the voters choose and determine the laws.
- No need for traditional political partys (meaning less social division).
- The speedy implementation of law will better move in step with our fast-changing world.
- Traditional election cycle that drives short term targets and planning eliminated.
- Government fully committed to running and enacting policy.
- Reduction in influence of the media, elites and big business.
- Law changes can be monitored for performance and impact by citizens and government.
- Works for any area size with voters included who are affected by the policy.
- Reduces "knee jerk" policy changes based on high profile but rare events.
- People in power often listen to the loudest cries of a few ignoring the general consensus.
- Votes will be more varied and interesting engaging a wider range of the population.
- The public will have more involvement creating more engagement (it might actually be fun!).
- Local populations will have much more say over the running and "philosophy" of their area.
