Jill Evans MEP backs Dafydd Iwan in presidential race

Plaid MEP Jill Evans has given her backing to Dafydd Iwan in his campaign to win the Party Presidency, for which a series of hustings meetings is under way.

Jill said today:

"Dafydd Iwan has always been an inspiration to people throughout Wales and beyond. I have worked with him on many campaigns including a number involving the peace movement. His commitment to Wales and the Welsh language is matched by his passionate belief in peace, justice and human rights.

"For the past four years I have worked alongside Dafydd in my capacity as Vice President of Plaid Cymru. He has played a vital role in the growth of Plaid Cymru as a dynamic political force in Wales. Dafydd is the link between the grassroots party members and the leadership team and it is essential that he continues this work".

Dafydd Iwan has set out his manifesto on his web site:

Jill Evans was re-elected unopposed in July as Vice President of Plaid Cymru. She represents the whole of Wales in the European Parliament.
