Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood says she's pleased that her party has managed to retain its seat in the European Parliament despite 'a difficult electoral context.'
I'm pleased that in a difficult electoral context, Wales returned its most effective representative to the European Parliament. The context of this election resulted in Plaid Cymru having to work considerably harder than other parties to get our message across to the people. I am proud of the teams of dedicated party members who worked hard across the country to spread Plaid Cymru's message of hope.I also thank those who cast their vote for Plaid Cymru and for Wales on Thursday. We will now continue to further Wales' interests in the European Parliament.
