Parliament takes axe to 2nd EU referendum petition

Richard Parkin

50%+1

All the organisations I've been a member of have require a greater than 50%+1 vote to change the constitution/rules. I think the petition has made a reasonable stab at writing a sensible rule so that 45% of the electorate would be required to pass a resolution, aside from saying you had to re-run if it failed. Even the wording of the referendum question is poor as it contains only a vague "should", not shall or must for example.
