Presiding Officer, Elin Jones AM was the guest speaker at Plaid Cymru Pontypridd’s St David’s Day celebration at the Ship Inn, Llantwit Fardre.
Ceredigion AM Elin Jones said: "It was a great pleasure to be in Pontypridd to mark St David's Day and to share the Assembly's exciting proposals for the future of democracy in Wales. Plans are in place for turning our National Assembly into a Welsh Parliament over the next few years and to reform the way we work. We are currently consulting on reforms which could strengthen our democracy institution which is good news for the people of Pontypridd - particularly for young people who, at 16, could be given the right to vote in elections to our National Assembly."
