Government Bills

"Governing" may be far more difficult than "promising", but this shouldn't be an excuse for rescinding manifesto pledges. During general elections Interactive Democracy places more weight on the skills and character of politicians as every element of a manifesto would require a separate vote. The government agenda would no longer dominate parliament without the explicit support of the people. The majority party would form a government in the same way as today and their policies would be enacted only in so far as they could garner continued support from the majority, issue by issue. Government would more directly be influenced by the people and would work for the people.
