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?
