The 27-year-old, originally from Blaenau Ffestiniog, said he hoped to "reach out" to people disillusioned with politics.

"I intend to use my knowledge of social media and the media generally to promote Plaid Cymru's message to voters" he said.

The Cardiff Central seat is currently held by Labour.
