For candidates and political parties

Facts Matter Take the Pledge

We are asking politicians and political parties to back the Facts Matter pledge with a commitment to running evidence-based election campaigns.

Facts matter pledge

“I recognise the vital role of facts and evidence in political campaigning for ensuring public trust and confidence in the democratic process. I will take all reasonable steps to run a fact-based 2017 General Election campaign.” 

If you are a political candidate in the upcoming election and agree with this statement, please email with your name and confirmation that you support the Facts Matter pledge. CILIP will add your name and party to a public web page of candidates that support the campaign. You can download graphics to demonstrate your commitment .
