Over 2,000 new members have joined the party since Adam Price was elected leader
Plaid Cymru membership has increased by over a quarter since the party’s leadership election two weeks ago.
This surge in membership, thought to be the largest weekly increase in the history of Plaid Cymru, has seen the number of party members storm past the 10,000 mark.
Membership continues to grow as Plaid Cymru’s message for a hopeful, independent future for a New Wales resonates.
Commenting on the membership surge, party leader Adam Price said,
“I extend a warm welcome to the thousands of people who have joined our cause in the last few days. Together we are going to work to win a New Wales.
“The dramatic surge in our membership shows that people are tired of the politics of the past and want a Plaid Cymru government to lead the building of the self-confident nation we know we must be.
“Our message is a simple one: Yes Wales Can. We can be confident, we can be prosperous, we can be Welsh and European, we can be independent.
“There is something happening in Welsh politics and you can be a part of it. By joining Plaid Cymru you will be able to shape the future of our nation.
“We’re on our way and we know that together, we can win a New Wales.”
The leader of Plaid Cymru announced in his speech at the party’s autumn conference that the membership fee would be waived for anyone joining Plaid Cymru for the remainder of 2018.
