The Bell Principles are the first code of conduct for elected representatives - they demand that politicians behave to the highest of standards.
The Independent Network - - asks that all endorsed candidates and supporters agree to these principles.
They were first formulated by the former independent MP Martin Bell and were presented to the Independent Network at a strategy meeting in September 2009. They were unanimously adopted by supporters of the Independent Network and were later edited by members of the Independent Network Executive.
They are seen as a living document and will be continuously edited to reflect the changing world we live in. If you have any comments regarding the Bell Principles, please send them to:firstname.lastname@example.org
