The party came within four seats of their best ever local election result in the May 5thelections, winning an additional 33 seats to bring their total to 202, ahead of the Conservatives on 184. They are now the largest party in eight Parliamentary constituencies, including some key targets for the party in the upcoming UK election.
Commenting, Plaid Cymru's Hywel Williams said:
"Wales cannot afford another five years of an unopposed Tory government, being let off the hook by a weak and divided Labour Party.
"Plaid Cymru has an outstanding team of candidates standing in every constituency in the country, ready to stand up to the Tories, united, to defend Wales.
"Plaid Cymru MPs were hardest working group of Welsh MPs in the last Parliament according to the House of Commons library. We made more speeches, asked more questions and turned up to vote more times than Labour, Tory or Liberal Democrat MPs.
"The more Plaid Cymru MPs there are in Westminster, the stronger Wales' voice will be. If people turn out to vote Plaid Cymru on June 8th, Wales will get the voice it has desperately needed in Westminster."
