Closed petition Trigger by-election for members wishing to change party affiliation

In the most recent term of the Senedd, a large number of MSs have changed their political affiliation. This is an undemocratic way for members to further their own political careers, against the parties they were elected to represent. When any member wishes to change their political affiliation, this should be taken to the people of their constituency. This isn't democracy, and can lead to dangerous ideas/parties being introduced to the Senedd.
