Plaid leader calls for new PM to face voters

Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood says there should be an early UK General Election, on the grounds that Theresa May doesn't have a democratic mandate. Ms Wood claims that the expected appointment of the new Conservative leader as Prime Minister "shows a disregard for democracy".

It is a matter of principle that the most powerful political position in the UK should be elected to his or her role as a result of a fairly contested election.

That is why I support an immediate UK-wide election to allow people to have their say as to who they believe is best placed to lead the UK through these testing, challenging times.

With Labour and the Tories engulfed by chaos and division, Plaid Cymru is putting forward the vision and values needed to take our country forward.

Plaid Cymru politicians would never abdicate their responsibilities to people in Wales in the same way as Brexit's so-called leaders have.
