The Commissioners and their role
The Government of Wales Act 2006 maintains that membership of the Assembly Commission will include the Presiding Officer and four other Assembly Members. Standing Order 3.3 sets out the arrangement for the appointment of the four other Assembly Members, and states that there will not be more than one member (other than the Presiding Officer) from the same political group.
The Assembly Commissioners were elected by Members in Plenary on 25 May 2011. Along with the Presiding Officer, who chairs the Commission, the members are Sandy Mewies AM, Angela Burns AM, Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM and Peter Black AM.
