Montgomeryshire is a constituency of the National Assembly for Wales. It elects one Assembly Member by the first past the post method of election. Also, however, it is one of eight constituencies in the Mid and West Wales electoral region, which elects four additional members, in addition to eight constituency members, to produce a degree of proportional representation for the region as a whole.

Boundaries

1999 to 2007

The constituency was created for the first election to the Assembly, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of the Montgomeryshire Westminster constituency. It is entirely within the preserved county of Powys, and one of three Powys constituencies. Also, it is one of eight constituencies in the Mid and West Wales electoral region.

The other Powys constituencies are Brecon and Radnorshire and Clwyd South. Brecon and Radnorshire is also entirely within the preserved county of Powys, and within the Mid and West Wales region. Clwyd South is partly, and mostly, a Clwyd constituency, and within the North Wales electoral region.

The region consists of the eight constituencies of Brecon and Radnorshire, Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Llanelli, Meirionnydd Nant Conwy, Montgomeryshire and Preseli Pembrokeshire.

From 2007

Constituency boundaries will change for the 2007 Assembly election, and so will regional boundaries. Montgomeryshire will remain a Powys constituency, however, and one of eight constituencies in the Mid and West Wales electoral region.

Montgomeryshire will be one of two constituencies covering Powys, both entirely within the preserved county, and both within the Mid and West Wales region. The other Powys constituency will be Brecon and Radnorshire.

The Mid and West Wales region will consist of the constituencies of Brecon and Radnorshire, Carmarthen East and Dinefwr, Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, Dwyfor Meirionnydd, Llanelli, Montgomeryshire and Preseli Pembrokeshire.

For Westminster purposes, the same new constituency boundaries will become effective for the 2010 United Kingdom general election.

Voting

In general elections for the National Assembly for Wales, each voter has two votes. The first vote may be used to vote for a candidate to become the Assembly Member for the voter's constituency, elected by the first past the post system. The second vote may be used to vote for a regional closed party list of candidates. Additional member seats are allocated from the lists by the d'Hondt method, with constituency results being taken into account in the allocation.
