Rejected petition Not to defer the Senedd elections for the 6/5/2021 there is time for this to work by distance
With the current response to COVID-19 it is inevitable that this unelected first minister will look to defer any elections in May to cling onto power knowing that if an election happened the current administration would immediately be ousted . COVID-19 cannot be used as yet another excuse for bad governance.
