To allow a little more flexibility in how the hustings are delivered, the duty is for the councils to make sure that one happens, not necessarily to run one.

Reduce the age of voting at Local Elections (ie to non-legislative bodies) to those aged 15 to encourage youth participation in democracy prior to enjoying full voting right at 16.

We'll give the Electoral Commission and local authorities a new responsibility to enable and/or host local election hustings between all the candidates in general elections.

The Electoral Commission and local authorities will be given a a new duty to ensure that at least one independent public hustings between all the candidates in general elections takes place, and is promoted to all constituents
