The Electoral Reform Society, which campaigns for electoral change, says the Queen's speech should include a bill which transfers power over elections to the Welsh Government. The Society's Director in Wales, Steve Brooks, says:
We hope the UK Government will announce plans to bring forward legislation to boost democracy in Wales. The Society would warmly welcome a Bill that reverses the ban on dual candidacy, and devolves power over local and Assembly elections to Wales.
With just two years to go before the next General Election, this is possibly the last opportunity to make progress on devolution before the parties inevitably focus all their efforts on the forthcoming electoral battle.
