South Wales Central region

71 candidates stood in the South Wales Central region.
When voting for members of the Senedd, you will have two votes. One for a member to represent your constituency, and one to represent your Welsh region. The Senedd currently has 60 elected members.
Members of the Senedd, or the Welsh Parliament, are elected to create laws for Wales and hold the Welsh Government to account. The Senedd is a devolved parliament, meaning legislative power has been transferred from the UK Government to the Senedd to give Welsh people more of a say on the laws made in Wales. The Senedd holds power over issues such as health, education and transport. The Senedd also has some tax-raising powers.
