PUBLIC SECTOR: Charter 88 shifts emphasis from lobbying

The new director of electoral reform body Charter 88, Pam Giddy, is to shift the weight of its PR activity towards campaigns and away from parliamentary lobbying after the passage of most of Labour’s constitutional reform bills through Parliament. Giddy will bring in a new head of campaigns to replace Greg Power who has moved to the Hansard society. The new head will oversee a strategy which aims to bring undecided constitutional issues into the public arena for debate, such as ensuring elections for the new House of Lords and that a proportional representation system is introduced for local government elections.
