Plaid Cymru the only party putting Wales first – Rhun ap Iorwerth


Following the boundary re-organisation to 32 seats it could be difficult for the party to repeat that performance.

Plaid Cymru was in a co-operation deal with Labour’s Welsh government until Plaid pulled out on 17 May – seven months early.

Mr ap Iorwerth represents Ynys Môn in the Welsh Parliament and this seat is one of their key targets for the UK general election on 4 July.

He told BBC Wales News it was a “challenging election” and said changes to boundaries had not been “kind to Plaid Cymru”.

“Our job is to show people in Wales there is a genuine alternative in Plaid Cymru,” he said.

“Plaid Cymru has a long and proud track record of punching well above our weight at Westminster

“We’re making it very clear in this election that voting for Plaid Cymru is a way to get rid of the Conservatives”, he said, “but it’s also a vote to keep Labour in check.

“Labour time and time again show they are taking Wales for granted.

“They are trying to pretend somehow now they haven’t been running health and education in Wales for the last 25 years.”
