Senedd and Elections (Wales) Act 2020

Section 34 – Effect of disqualification

121.Section 34 amends section 18 of the 2006 Act to insert a new subsection (A1). That subsection provides that if a person who is disqualified from being a candidate for membership of the Senedd is nominated as a candidate at an election, the nomination is void.

122.The section also repeals certain provisions in sections 18 and 19 of the 2006 Act which are no longer necessary as a result of section 29 of the Act. The repealed provisions all relate to the possibility of a person being disqualified in relation to a particular Senedd constituency or electoral region. That possibility only arises under section 16(4) of the 2006 Act, which is repealed by section 29(5).
