About Republic

Republic is a membership-based pressure group campaigning for the abolition of the monarchy and its replacement with a directly elected head of state.

We represent all Britain's republicans, bringing the case for a republic to a wider audience while scrutinising the actions of the royal household. We are strictly non-party political and have the support of over 80,000 republicans.

We are a democratic organisation, led by our members and underpinned by a set of core principles.  We are an inclusive movement, with members and supporters from across the political spectrum and from a diverse range of backgrounds.

How Republic Is Run

Republic is a democratic organisation, governed by an elected board of directors.

The board meets every three months and is responsible for setting the broad strategic direction of the organisation, scrutinising the campaign work carried out by staff and volunteers and looking after issues of financial management and governance.

The day-to-day running of the campaign is delegated to the chief executive officer, who is supported by staff and volunteers.

The board of directors

The board is the executive body of Republic.  Its members are elected at the Annual General Meeting, which is usually held in the early part of each year.  Directors can also be co-opted at other times of the year.  Meet the team
