Online Party of Canada: How democratic are our elections?

TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - Online Party of Canada (OPC, www.onlineparty.ca, Twitter @onlinepartyca) is a new, internet-based political party seeking registration in preparation for spring elections in Canada.

OPC's goal is to create a viable alternative to the traditional political system. What sets it apart from existing political parties is the modern concept, and the use of internet technology to bring sweeping change to a deeply flawed system that gave politics a bad name for so many decades.

Democracies pride themselves in their electoral systems. But one has to wonder: why do we see so many incumbents and political dynasties (e.g. the Bushes, Clintons, Trudeaus, Mulroneys), and why are the changes so minimal when the political power shifts? As a compelling example, the war in Afghanistan is highly unpopular among Canadians; however, despite being started under a Liberal government it continues under the Conservatives.

"I envisioned a system where we no longer vote for people, groups, or political platforms" explains Mr. Michael Nicula, OPC Founder. "No specific person or platform will fit the voters' will across different issues, leading to repeated disappointment and disillusionment with the political system. Our party proposes that we vote on individual issues instead of individual politicians, and more importantly, have our elected officials legally compelled to implement what the members want. The electoral system has to change".

Mr. Nicula opines, "Elections can't be truly democratic because there will never be a fair contest. Some candidates will always get a head start due to name recognition, money, or support from interest groups or lobbyists. They can wage negative advertising campaigns and make false promises, as the current system does not hold them accountable".

OPC wishes to attract Canadians who are disenchanted with the current political system and want a fresh start. We offer an online voting mechanism that is fair, auditable and continuous; members can vote and change their vote at anytime. While all votes are equal, we offer specialist opinions and strong leadership to encourage informed and educated voting across diverse issues.

Join our online meetings every Monday, 10 PM EST, to discuss this topic and much more. See www.onlineparty.ca for details. No registration is necessary.
