Janet Finch-Saunders is today calling on a greater level of transparency from the Commission on Constitutional reform as recommendations are likely to include an increased number of seats in the Senedd and a reformed voting system. Janet has been keen to emphasise the need for constructive debate on this issue making light of the current democratic deficit that exists in Wales.
Commenting on the matter, Janet said;
“Wales is still in its democratic infancy which is a very unique and privileged position to be in. It is therefore important that any reforms made are carried out based on models seen elsewhere in the world that could better improve the level of democracy and governance in Cardiff Bay.”
Janet Finch-Saunders strongly believes that Welsh Labour have allowed media speculation and conversations amongst politicos to conjure hypothetical scenarios that have in turn lead to an unhealthy conversation on matters related to the Welsh constitution.
Further commenting on the matter, Janet said;
“As I hope the Counsel General will agree, discussions on the future of Wales need to be held in a transparent and open manner, where citizens can continuously scrutinise the work of the Commission and provide their input on how they envisage a modern-day democratic Wales to look. The future of this country should not be calved up behind closed doors.”
