Preseli Pembrokeshire CLP nominates Eluned Morgan for Welsh Labour leader
At its October meeting, Preseli Pembrokeshire CLP voted to nominate Eluned Morgan as our preferred candidate for Welsh Labour leader and therefore First Minister of Wales. We feel that in the marginal two seats of Preseli Pembrokeshire and South Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen West, where there are Tory incumbents, having Eluned as leader would help us unseat them. Eluned has experience of the UK and European parliaments – something the other candidates lack.
We also think it would be good for Labour to have its first female leader in government office in any of the parliaments of the UK and devolved nations.
