Unanimous support for Jonathan for 2015 election

Local Member of Parliament, Jonathan Edwards, has received unanimous support from Plaid Cymru representatives to stand again in the 2015 Westminster election.

During a meeting at the Rhys Pritchard Memorial Hall in Llandovery, party members gave a resounding endorsement of Jonathan’s hard work and dedication in standing up for Carmarthenshire since becoming an MP three years ago.

Following the meeting the Chair of the local constituency party, Glanaman’s County Councillor David Jenkins said the party was proud to have Jonathan represent them.

Chair of the constituency party, Councillor David Jenkins said:

“Jonathan had a tough act to follow when he took over from Adam Price. However he has made a significant impact on the political stage – gaining tremendous respect from all sides of the Commons and puts the needs Carmarthenshire and Wales first each and every time he gets up to speak.

“Jonathan’s performance this week in response to the Budget demonstrated his exceptional economic knowledge and ability to stand up to the UK government.

“It’s a compliment that the Labour party has chosen Carmarthen East and Dinefwr as a target constituency for them in 2015. When even government MPs congratulate Jonathan on being more effective than the official Labour opposition, it’s inevitable that the Labour party will want to stop Jonathan exposing their Tory-light policies.

“Whether its public sector pensions, rising fuel costs, increases in VAT, defending our farmers or the continuous attacks on the most vulnerable in our society, Jonathan is always on the right side of the argument standing up for Carmarthenshire. We’re very proud to have him represent us”.

Jonathan Edwards MP added:

“It is an honour and a privilege to serve the residents of my home communities as their Member of Parliament.

“I am very grateful to have received the overwhelming support of my party to continue to be their voice in Westminster.

“Plaid Cymru never takes any vote for granted. I will continue to work hard and represent every constituent to the best of my ability”.
