Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order replaces and revokes the Elections (Welsh Forms) Order 1970 (“the 1970 Order”). The forms prescribed by Schedule 1 to this Order are versions partly in Welsh and partly in English which must be used in Wales for the purposes referred to in article 4 of this Order. The forms prescribed by Schedule 2 to this Order are Welsh versions of certain forms which may be used at a parliamentary election in Wales.

The differences between this Order and the 1970 Order are as follows. The bilingual versions of the forms in Schedule 1 to this Order are not prescribed by the 1970 Order. Schedule 2 to this Order omits the Welsh version of the declaration of secrecy consequent on the repeal of the requirement for such a declaration but includes the Welsh version of the directions for the guidance of the voters in voting.

Note as to Earlier Commencement Orders

NODYN ESBONIO(Nid yw'r nodyn hwn yn rhan o'r Gorchymyn)

Mae'r Gorchymyn hwn yn disodli a diddymu'r Elections (Welsh Forms) Order 1970 (“Gorchymyn 1970”). Mae'r ffurflenni a bennir gan Atodiad 1 y Gorchymyn hwn yn fersiynau rhannol Gymraeg a rhannol Saesneg y mae rhaid eu defnyddio yng Nghymru at y dibenion y cyfeirir atynt yn erthygl 4 y Gorchymyn hwn. Mae'r ffurflenni a bennir yn Atodiad 2 y Gorchymyn hwn yn fersiynau Cymraeg o rai ffurflenni y gellir eu defnyddio mewn etholiad seneddol yng Nghymru.

Mae'r gwahaniaethau rhwng y Gorchymyn hwn a Gorchymyn 1970 fel a ganlyn. Ni phennwyd fersiynau dwyieithog y ffurflenni gan Atodiad 1 y Gorchymyn hwn gan Orchymyn 1970. Mae Atodiad 2 y Gorchymyn hwn yn hepgor fersiwn Cymraeg y datganiad cyfrinachedd o ganlyniad i ddiddymu'r gofyniad am ddatganiad o'r fath ond mae'n cynnwys fersiwn Cymraeg o'r cyfarwyddiadau i bleidleiswyr wrth bleidleisio.
