Paragraph 2:  2007 election to be election to Assembly constituted under this Act

791.Most of the provisions of the Act are to come into force immediately after the Welsh general election to be held in May 2007. This paragraph, (together with those which follow it), enable that election, although generally held under the existing Government of Wales Act 1998, to be an election to the Assembly as newly constituted and to take account of the changes to electoral arrangements, and other associated reforms, for which this Act provides.
