e-Petition: Assembly Members (Removal of) by Petition

open quote / dyfyniad agored

We, the undersigned, call upon the National Assembly for Wales, as part of its review into the electoral system in Wales, to create a recall system where Assembly Members can be removed from the Assembly by petition.

We believe that if 5% of a constituency (or 1% of a region)'s electorate sign a petition calling for the removal of an Assembly member from the Assembly, then a two stage process should be started where the Assembly Member is investigated by the Assembly (to determine if the Assembly Member has done something to merit a removal) and then a referendum in that constituency / region where on a compulsory turnout 50% of the electorate plus one must vote YES to the removal of the Member.
