Plaid Cymru: Voting for us keeps Tories out and Labour in Check

PLAID CYMRU’S leader has declared that a vote for his party will keep the Conservatives “out of Wales” and ensure Labour is “kept in check”.

Speaking ahead of Plaid Cymru’s general election campaign launch, Rhun ap Iorwerth emphasised that his party was “taking the fight” to their rivals across Wales. He asserted that Plaid Cymru was “best placed to effectively represent our communities and offer a positive alternative to Labour and the Tories”.

In the 2019 general election, Plaid Cymru won four of Wales’ 40 constituencies. However, following the boundary reorganisation reducing the number of seats to 32, it may be challenging for the party to replicate that performance.

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

He stated: “Plaid’s positive message of a fairer, more ambitious Wales shows that we are the only party putting the interests of the nation ahead of party interests.

“It is clear that people across Wales have called time on this disastrous and destructive Conservative government.

“In stark contrast, Labour’s campaign has already consigned Wales to the scrapheap of unfair funding and a Westminster parliament which holds Wales back.”
