General Election 2010

The next General Election can take place no later than 3 June 2010, and conventional wisdom would suggest that the most likely date will be 6 May as there are already local elections on this day.

Why is it important?

The general election provides a unique opportunity for making contact with your local political candidates and raising their awareness of human rights issues. It is important that they are aware that they have constituents who care about human rights and believe that it should matter to their MP. 

What are Amnesty’s key concerns?

Amnesty believes respect for human rights should be at the centre of government policy and practice and urges all parties to make the following commitments in their manifesto:

  • The rights of women in the UK and overseas
  • Security and human rights 
  • The human rights framework in the UK
  • Human rights and poverty
