Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

No, you are right.  Vetting panels select the MP candidates.  This is (one of many reasons) why I would never bother standing since I know I'd not get through the vetting or be put in a winnable seat.

One member, one vote is for Assembly Member candidates from the shortlist (branches nominate candidates to the shortlist).  MEPs are selected by vetting panels.  Then the constituency meetings are asked to approve this.

Would anyone like a diary on the AM selection process we've been going through here?

I may be mistaken, but haven't you diaried just that about a year ago?

A year ago would have been the local council elections, the AM selection process is new to all of us and we are still part way through.

Hm... I am not at all certain, but I think it was a different story from your two battling councillors. Or maybe it was a long comment... Anyway, if I can't find it and you don't remember anything like it, and especially if its practice is new stuff for you, of course write about it!
