A Welsh Constitution

The statutory National Commission would be tasked with drafting a constitution for an independent Wales. It would be required to consult through Citizens Assemblies, being mindful of diversity and inclusion.

The Welsh Constitution should include:

  • A declaration that Welsh sovereignty rests with the people of Wales.
  • A description and role of Welsh governing institutions as well as the rights and responsibilities of citizens.
  • That those rights and responsibilities should extend beyond the purely political and legalistic to encompass social and economic rights and responsibilities.
  • That it should draw on best practice from around the world, especially constitutions that have been drawn up for small nations in analogous positions to that of Wales.
