2021 elections


The full results in Wales are now in with 2,837 voting for the Communist Party of Britain across Wales. A fantastic result given that the most recent election campaign held in Wales was back in 2016. It’s certain that Communists in Wales can only build from this result. As Plaid Cymru’s Adam Price brings Plaid Cymru to the right and Labour continues with infighting and failing to oppose the Tories, the case for the Communist Party in Wales has never been stronger. Welsh Communists are standing in all five of the regional Senedd with Trevor Jones in North Wales, Claudia Cannon in Mid & West Wales, Laura Picand in South Wales West, Robert Griffiths in South Wales East and Anita Wright in South Wales Central.[1]

CP candidates

In April 2021 the Welsh Communist Party registered 20 candidates to fight the May 6 Snedd elections.

My name is Claudia Cannon, and I’m proud to be standing as the lead candidate for the Communist Party in Mid and West Wales. I’m a trainee arts teacher and member of UCU.

I’m an opponent of NATO and helped organize migrant solidarity events in Swansea in 2016.

I have a track record of campaigning for students’ and workers’ rights, and am still fighting against rising fees, casualisation, and privatisation of education.

Having grown up in the rural mining town of Ammanford during the nineties, I have seen first-hand the ongoing, horrific impact of Thatcher’s attack on miners.[2]
