    "explanation": "Members of the Senedd, or the Welsh Parliament, are elected to create laws for Wales and hold the Welsh Government to account. The Senedd is a devolved parliament, meaning legislative power has been transferred from the UK Government to the Senedd to give Welsh people more of a say on the laws made in Wales. The Senedd holds power over issues such as health, education and transport. The Senedd also has some tax-raising powers.\r\n\r\nWhen voting for members of the Senedd, you will have two votes. One for a member to represent your constituency, and one to represent your Welsh region. The Senedd currently has 60 elected members. \r\n\r\n[Read more about the Senedd's powers.](https://www.centreonconstitutionalchange.ac.uk/the-basics/what-powers-does-senedd-welsh-parliament-have)",
