Cross-Party Groups

Cross-Party Groups may be set up by Assembly Members in respect of any subject area relevant to the Assembly.

A group must include Members from three political party groups represented within the Assembly. Cross-Party Groups are not formal Assembly groupings and are not, therefore, bound by any of the Assembly's Standing Orders. They have no formal role in policy development.

The Fifth Assembly started after the election on Thursday 5 May 2016.

A new Presiding Officer and Deputy Presiding Officer will be elected at the first meeting of the Fifth Assembly after the election on Thursday 5 May.

New Assembly Commissioners will also be elected once the Fifth Assembly has been formed.

New committees, starting with the Business Committee, will be agreed by Assembly Members after the Assembly has met and a Government has been formed.

For election results, analysis and all the latest information about what happens next please see
This page will be updated as soon as new information is available.

Cross Party Groups cease to exist at the point of dissolution and will be required to re-register from the start of the Fifth Assembly.
