Wales CAN – Rhun ap Iorwerth launches Leadership Campaign video

Plaid Cymru leadership candidate Rhun ap Iorwerth AM has launched his official campaign video this week, detailing his vision for the future of the party and Wales and how he would lead the nation forward if elected as leader of the party.

In the video, Mr ap Iorwerth talks about how he would look to build the nation, and make Plaid Cymru the party a natural home for those who want to build Wales into an independent nation.

Mr ap Iorwerth said:

“The Plaid Cymru leadership contest is all about Wales, and the future of our country. I’m standing because I know Wales and the people of Wales are being held back from reaching their potential, and I want to share and lead a new vision about what Wales can be.

“I want to be leader of Plaid Cymru to kickstart that process of building up Wales. I want everyone who wants to focus on that nation-building programme to feel like they have a home in Plaid Cymru. We’re your party, whatever your background, wherever you’re from, whether you were born and bred in Wales or you moved here yesterday.

“We’ve got to look forward, not back, and be clear about what we can be. Wales CAN. We’ve just got to start believing it. Plaid Cymru believes it. I do. But we’ve got to be able to communicate that vision, and the country needs leadership.

“I’m standing to be leader of Plaid Cymru because I want to lead Wales to a more equal, more prosperous, more exciting future, so please, support my campaign, and let’s share that story of what Wales can be.”
