The Wales Act 2017 gives the Assembly powers over its own electoral and internal arrangements.
This provides opportunities to consider whether changes to the Assembly could contribute to ensuring that it is able to carry out its current and future responsibilities as effectively as possible. Issues being considered include:
– The number of Members the Assembly needs to carry out its responsibilities;
– how should we vote to elect Assembly Members; and
– who should be able to vote in National Assembly elections.
These are some of the issues that will be discussed at events across Wales during March, run by the National Assembly for Wales in partnership with the Centre for Welsh Politics and Society / WISERD@
Aberystwyth, Institute of Welsh Affairs, and the Morgan Academy.
A panel presentation will be followed by a question and answer session, where you will have the opportunity to ask questions to the Llywydd, Elin Jones AM.
