There will son be be two by-elections on Cardiff soon! Cllrs Luke Holland (Splot) and Phil Hawkings (Riverside) are standing down ,
Perhaps the real interest will be if the Plaid and the Liberal Democrats can resist the temptation to agree to not to contest the seats they have no chance or winning but the other clearly has
Riverside will be Plaids target
.They won al Three seats in 20008 only to lose one in a byelection in and the other two in 2011
Nevertheless they should have high hopes of winning again
Party vote 2012
The others had less than 300 votes.
In Splot it should be between Labour and the Libdems they one of the three seats in 2008 but Labour rook al three in 2011
Again the other came nowhere.
So will there be a "agreement participially if the elections are on the same day.
Looking at the figures Plaid should be confident in Riverside with or without Libdem intervention but the LibDems may have to struggle more.
So I can't see Anti Labour pact that can be used against Plaid by Labour in Wales.
But these will be By-elections to keep our eyes on.
