Plaid Cymru – The Party of Wales will tomorrow hold a Special Conference to decide upon its future structures as it prepares for the forthcoming cycle of elections.
The changes to the party’s Constitution and Standing Orders emerge from “Camu ‘Mlaen-Moving Forward’ - the far reaching review of the party led by Dr Eurfyl ap Gwilym.
The proposals include opening the party conference to all members rather than limiting it to delegates; streamlining the decision making and scrutiny structures of the party; and strengthening the constitutional position of the leader.
The Party of Wales’ Chair Helen Mary Jones said:
“I firmly believe that these changes will strengthen our party and transform our structures to enable us to become the campaigning organisation we want and need to be. Our intention is to win the trust of the people of Wales and to lead our nation – these proposals will transform the way we take our message to communities the length and breadth of Wales. Unlike other parties, Plaid Cymru continues to uphold and value the role of all its members in deciding party policy and direction. I am particularly proud of the proposal that would allow all party members to be able to participate fully in our National Conference.”
