Vote Plaid to keep Labour in check, leader says

Plaid Cymru’s leader has said a vote for his party will keep the Conservatives “out of Wales” and also keep Labour “in check”.

Speaking ahead of Plaid’s general election campaign launch, Rhun ap Iorwerth said his party was “taking the fight” to their rival parties across Wales.

He said Plaid Cymru was “best placed to effectively represent our communities and offer a positive alternative to Labour and the Tories”.

At the last general election in 2019, Plaid won four of Wales’ 40 constituencies.

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

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 said: “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.”
