Jonathan was a Member of the first Welsh Youth Parliament from 2018 to 2021.

The following was his candidate statement for election to the first Welsh Youth Parliament:

My key issues are:

  • Religious freedom in Wales
  • Promoting arts in Wales
  • Crime and justice in Wales

Hello My name is Jonathan Powell, I’m 16 years of age and love my country!

I desire to see Wales thrive as a country, a country which listens to it’s citizens and takes their advice on board. One thing I am passionate about is the  arts; music, performing... All things I love. Sadly in Wales we are seeing a decrease of country funded music services and this saddens me.

We have always been a country known for music and culture and I am determined to make this well known trate continue from generation to generation.

As a Christian a topic close to my heart is religious freedom, we as a country seem to be restricting many areas of freedom of speech and I am passionate about standing up to ensure that as in the past we as a country continue to pride ourself on our freedom and liberty and values.

As an individual I am a keen speaker who enjoys taking. I am confident and am also a welsh speaker and I believe we must keep our language alive. I do hope you will vote for me so I can represent you and our great nation!
