The leadership of the party needs to be accountable to the grassroots members of the party. These changes will help to ensure that following an unsuccessful election, the grassroots members of the party are empowered to ensure that the leader is subject to a review of their leadership in a timely manner. If the grassroots members lack confidence in the leader, this process will ensure that the process to find a new leader begins in a timely manner to ensure stability within the party.
