I RECENTLY announced an invitation to people across the length and breadth of Wales to help us transform our Nation.

I have decided to invite people outside our traditional party network to apply to become candidates in the European, Westminster and Assembly elections over the next four years.

The aim of the open door candidate policy is to inspire people from all walks of life to put their names forward to stand and to serve.

I want to make sure we utilise all the talent there is in Wales to shape and build our nation. I also want us to feel a sense of excitement about what our own Parliament here in Wales can be.

If you would like to become a candidate please email post@plaidcymru.org in the first instance Leanne Wood Leader Plaid Cymru – The Party of Wales
