Plaid Cymru have elected a new party chairman at their conference in Aberystwyth.Dr Dafydd Trystan Davies, a former chief executive of the party, will succeed Helen Mary Jones.
I’m delighted to have been elected chair of Plaid Cymru. My aim is to build on the strong foundations left by my predecessor, Helen Mary Jones.
These are exciting times for Plaid Cymru and I intend to play my part in preparing the party as we head towards the National Assembly for Wales elections in 2016.
As chair I’ve a very important role to play as a voice for members in the party, bringing together the volunteers across the country and linking them into the elected members and the professional staff of the party.
As chair, I’m keen to engage with our young members, ensure a higher percentage of women candidates representing the Party and to attract people from all backgrounds to Plaid Cymru. I also want to hear from those who are interesting in contributing to Plaid Cymru, whether or not they are party members.
