Welsh Conservative candidate for the Vale of Glamorgan in the Senedd Matt Smith commented on press speculation that the Cardiff Labour government is considering deferring the Senedd election scheduled for May 6th:
"Drakeford has embarked on a power grab, pushing back against Westminster and the devolutionary boundaries for political reasons.
"He wasn’t Labour leader going into the last Senedd election in 2016.
"No one voted for his distancing of Wales from Westminster.
"The people of the Vale of Glamorgan and Wales must have their say when they were told they would - on 6th May 2021!"
