Adam Price Wins Plaid Cymru Leadership
Adam Price has won the election to become Plaid Cymru leader, defeating incumbent leader Leanne Wood and fellow challenger Rhun ap Iorwerth.
Price won 2863 votes in the first round, to Wood’s 1286 and ap Iorwerth’s 1613. With Leanne Wood voters' second preferences redistributed, Adam Price ended on a total of 3481 votes with Rhun ap Iorwerth on 1961.
Adam Price was born into a miner’s family in Carmarthenshire before going to a Welsh-medium school. He later attended Cardiff and Harvard Universities. He gained public recognition as an MP as a vocal opponent of the Iraq War, notably being involved in an attempt to impeach Tony Blair.
He was first elected as AM for Carmarthen East and Dinefwr in 2016, before playing a significant role in developing policy for Plaid, primarily focusing on economy, transport, social enterprises and government structures.
Following today’s result, he will become the fourth leader of Plaid Cymru in the Assembly era.
For a bird's eye view.
