PLAID CYMRU kicked off the last full day of campaigning before Thursday’s election with a rally at Castell Howells, Cross Hands today (Wednesday, May 5).
Leader Adam Price delivered his party’s final pitch to voters ahead of polling day on May 6.
Adam Price was accompanied by local candidates Helen Mary Jones (Llanelli) and Cefin Campbell (Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire).
Adam Price said that Plaid Cymru’s belief in Wales’s ability to solve its own problems stood in stark contrast to Labour and the Tories whose “can’t do” attitude always puts Westminster before Wales.
The Plaid Cymru Leader added that his party’s “transformational programme for government” reflected the scale of change and ambition required to rebuild Wales’s economy and public services after the Covid pandemic.
“At this election more than any other, a vote for Plaid Cymru is a vote for hope.
“We refuse to believe that there is anything inferior about Wales that means we can’t thrive like other independent nations around the world.
“In contrast to Labour and the Tories’ “can’t do” attitude and their determination to put Westminster before Wales every time, we believe in our nation’s ability to solve its own problems.
“The Covid pandemic has demanded more of us in so many ways. More kindness, more patience, more strength, and more innovation.
“Now is the time to show more ambition than ever before to ensure that we meet the challenge of rebuilding our economy and public services.
“That is why Plaid Cymru is putting forward such a transformational programme for government to reflect the scale of change and ambition required to succeed.
“From creating up to 60,000 jobs and delivering 50,000 public homes, from offering free school meals to all primary pupils and free childcare from 24 months, and from training and recruiting 6,000 frontline NHS staff and cutting council tax for the average household, Plaid Cymru’s vision gives hope.
“Hope for a better future, a fairer future, and a future where our nation and everyone who calls it home can fulfil their potential.
“There is nothing we cannot achieve together, and that journey can start tomorrow with a vote for Plaid Cymru, a vote for hope.”
The rally adhered to all Coronavirus regulations and guidance.
