Plaid’s new leader – a Rhondda woman.

This is a big deal. Leanne Wood is the new Plaid Cymru leader. (From the BBC).

A pretty convincing victory:

First preferences:

Leanne 2,879

Elin Jones 1,884

Dafydd El 1,278

Leanne almost won on the first vote and after transfers won a convincing victory.

A few things:

1) The first non first Welsh language leader in our history.

2) The first leader from the South Wales valleys.

3) Our first female leader.

Llongyfarchiadau a phob lwc Leanne.
