Should the UK voting system change?
Five former Labour cabinet ministers have pledged their opposition to changing the system for electing MPs. What is your opinion?
A referendum will be held on 5 May to decide whether the current electoral system of first-past-the-post should be replaced by the alternative voting (AV) system.
The Conservatives and Lib Dems agreed to hold a referendum as part of their coalition deal but Prime Minister David Cameron and his deputy Nick Clegg are on different sides of the argument over the need for change.
While the Conservatives largely oppose change and the Lib Dems support it, Labour appears divided over the issue.
What do you think of the current voting system? Would you support the introduction of AV? What impact would a change in the voting system have on British politics?
