EXPATS living on the Costa del Sol could have their own MP under Liberal Democrat plans for overseas constituencies.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg wants MPs representing British nationals in Europe, Africa and North America in order to create a ‘fairer’ Parliament.
British expats can currently still vote for 15 years, with their votes counted in their old constituency.
Under the Lib Dem plans, expected to be approved at the Spring party conference, MPs would provide expats with a voice back in the UK.
Many European countries already have a system like this in place. France, for example, has six seats spread across Europe, two in Africa, two in America and one in Asia.
The plans, titled Power to the People, also include lowering the voting age to 16, a special seat for the House of Commons speaker and allowing two people to work part-time collaboratively as one MP.
