Plaid Cymru “ready to take the fight to the London parties to demand the fairness Wales needs and deserves”

A general election will be held on 4 July, 2024.

Responding to the announcement that a general election will be held, Plaid Cymru Leader Rhun ap Iorwerth MS said,

"Only a vote for Plaid Cymru will put Wales' best interests first in this election.

"We are ready to take this fight to the London parties to demand the fairness that Wales both needs and deserves.

"The Tories have crashed the economy and hard-working people are still paying the price of high bills. Labour, on the other hand, just take Wales for granted. None of the London parties will put Wales first.

"Only Plaid Cymru will demand fairness for Wales - a fairer funding deal so we can invest in our economy, NHS and schools; the billions owed to us in rail cash so we can connect our communities north to south; and the powers over our natural resources so we can build an economy fit for the future by creating well-paid green jobs. 

"In Plaid Cymru, you have candidates rooted in their communities. Strong local champions who’ll be Wales’s voice in Westminster – not Westminster’s voice in Wales. And more Plaid Cymru MPs means more voices shouting for Wales.
