Arfon AM Alun Ffred Jones has announced that he will be supporting Elin Jones in her bid to be Plaid Cymru’s next leader.


Alun Ffred Jones said: "Elin Jones has proved herself as an effective politician.  She has fought four elections successfully in Ceredigion and has been a highly respected Minister in the One Wales Government. I am also glad that Simon Thomas is part of the leadership team as he is one of the best thinkers we have in Plaid Cymru.Plaid has to appeal widely across Wales and not become a marginal pressure group.  


I strongly believe that Elin has the personality and experience to unite Plaid, to make it an effective party and build a confident, sustainable and prosperous Wales.
