Assembly Members, and their roles and responsibilities

Assembly Members (AMs) come from all the constituencies and regions of Wales to represent you in the National Assembly. They carry out the Assembly’s democratic work; they represent the interests of Wales and its people, make laws for Wales and hold the Welsh Government to account.

Each person in Wales is represented by five Assembly Members. One represents the constituency you live in, and four represent the region you live in. In this section, you can find out more about exactly how Assembly Members carry out their duties and how they represent you.
