Rejected petition Allow political canvassing in the Welsh Elections

Leafleting has been allowed, but not canvassing. This seems unfair, the Welsh Government must allow a safe campaign as England has already done. This will allow all parties to properly compete, with Covid-Rates so low - what is the delay?

Why was this petition rejected?

This petition was withdrawn by the petitioner.

In light of changes to the Coronavirus regulations, which mean that canvassing will be permitted from 12 April, the petitioner decided to withdraw the petition. https://gov.wales/written-statement-review-health-protection-coronavirus-restriction-no5-wales-regulations-2020-3
