Rebecca Evans MS, Minister for Finance and Local Government
I am using my powers under Article 18 of the National Assembly for Wales (Representation of the People) Order 2007 to designate one of the Returning Officers for constituencies falling within a Senedd electoral region as Regional Returning Officer for that electoral region. This is necessary for North Wales due to retirement.
I am pleased to announce the Senedd Regional Returning Officer for any forthcoming Senedd election shall be: North Wales – Ian Bancroft – Returning Officer, Wrexham County Borough Council
In the other four regions, the current Regional Returning Officers will continue in their roles.
I would like to thank the Iwan Davies for his service as the outgoing officer.
The Regional Returning Officers are responsible for co-ordinating arrangements for the regional poll in their respective Senedd electoral region.
This statement is being issued during recess in order to keep members informed. Should members wish me to make a further statement or to answer questions on this when the Senedd returns I would be happy to do so.
