Abstract

This article examines aspects of Wales's new political system. It identifies a core tension between traditional, majoritarian-designed institutions and procedures, and a new political pluralism. There is a fundamental disconnection between current politics and the original system design which has added complexity and inefficiency to the operation, management and administration of most aspects of devolved politics. Moreover, understanding the contours of the nascent and inchoate system in W ales has been obscured by debates about the distribution of legislative powers between Westminster and Cardiff. The article identifies lessons from coalition government in Wales, both for academics working on the implications of coalitions and for practitioners-specifically for 'constitution managers' and those engaged in policy-making.
