Plaid Cymru conference in huge support for commitment to People’s Vote
Plaid Cymru members have voted in huge numbers in favour an emergency motion to reaffirm the party’s commitment to a people’s vote.
The motion was submitted jointly by the party’s parliamentary groups in the Senedd, Westminster and Brussels.
The motion reaffirms that the party supports a people’s vote in all circumstances except where the UK Government seems a mandate for a disastrous crash out Brexit.
Under those circumstances, Plaid Cymru would campaign on a platform to revoke Article 50.
Hywel Williams MP said:
“Plaid Cymru has been clear and consistent that a people’s vote is the best way to end this Brexit crisis.
“A general election won’t solve this chaos. Only by putting it back to the people can we end this.
“But if the UK Government seeks a crash out, no deal mandate, Plaid Cymru must and will campaign to revoke Article 50 because at that point, that will be the only lever left to protect Wales and our communities from the disastrous effects of no deal.
“Plaid Cymru’s first and foremost priority is always Wales and we will always do what needs to be done to protect the Welsh national interest.”
