Plaid Cymru has announced its team of candidates for the European election.

The four candidates, who are of a diversity of gender, age, and experience in public life, will now be setting out Plaid Cymru’s pitch to voters ahead of the election.

Westminster simply isn’t working for Wales. This election is our opportunity to send a message to Westminster politicians that they cannot ignore: we reject their dangerous, damaging Brexit.

There is a simple way out of this Brexit mess, and that is to take our future in into our hands. Plaid Cymru is Wales’ leading pro-European party, and a vote for us in this election is a vote of belief in Wales’ future as a proud, European nation.

The Plaid Cymru candidates in the European election are:

  1. Jill Evans MEP
  2. Carmen Smith
  3. Patrick McGuinness
  4. Ioan Bellin

Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price AM said:

“I am extremely proud of our fantastic team of candidates in this election.

“We are clear that Westminster simply isn’t working for Wales. While Labour and the Tories squabble among themselves, their governments at either end of the M4 have taken their eyes off the ball.

“There is a way out of this shambles, and that is to take our future into our own hands. This election is our opportunity to send Westminster politicians a message they cannot ignore: Wales rejects their dangerous, damaging Brexit.

“A vote for Plaid Cymru in this election is a vote to make Wales matter. We deserve better, and we can be better, than this. I’m looking forward to working with our team of candidates to share that message in every community across Wales.”

Plaid Cymru’s lead candidate Jill Evans MEP said:

“I am proud to be Plaid Cymru’s lead candidate in this election once again.

“This election offers us an unmissable opportunity to reject the Brexit mess caused by Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn, and instead to embrace Wales’ future as a proud European nation.

“Westminster is broken, and Wales deserves better. Over the coming weeks, I’m looking forward to speaking to people all over Wales about our mission to build a New Wales.”
