Since I’ve just been posting on the subject, it seems a good idea to note that the Welsh assembly has now launched an online petitioning facility (found via DoWire.org’s UKIE community). The description of the process is here.
The process is mostly consistent with the model I blogged about earlier this week, albeit with more clarity about the reasons why a petition may be rejected. There is a variation: an (unstated) minimum number of signatures is required before a closed petition will be considered. Also, online discussion of the issued does not seem to be supported.
No live e-petitions have appeared yet, so I can’t make any comments on how the system works in practise, or compares to the well established Scottish system.
