Referendum on voting reform will be held in May
A referendum on whether to change Britain's first-past-the-post electoral system will be held next May, Nick Clegg will announce next week.
The Liberal Democrats secured the promise of an historic public vote as part of their coalition agreement with the Conservatives when the May election resulted in a hung parliament.Since then, the two parties have been negotiating the timing of the referendum. Mr Clegg has been pressing for an early vote next May to coincide with elections to the Scottish Parliament, Welsh Assembly and English councils. --->>>
