Members of the Senedd, their roles and responsibilities

Members of the Senedd (MSs) come from all the constituencies and regions of Wales to represent you in the Senedd. They carry out the Senedd’s democratic work; they represent the interests of Wales and its people, make laws for Wales and hold the Welsh Government to account.
