Cadnant Election Labour crow over win
On Thursday 2 Ebrill 2015 an election was held for one County Councillor for the Cadnant Electoral Division resulting in a Labour Gain from Plaid
The 2012 result had seen a comfortable Plaid win
Turnout: 47.83% Disregarded papers: 6'
So it looks like the Plaid loss om only a slightly smaller turnout was largely due to the intervention of other candidates rather than a huge swing to Labour
There was also a battle for the Town Council and it was a straight fight
Cyngor Tref however
Welsh Labour boasted that the by-election in Cadnant stopped Plaid’s “20-year hold” on the ward with a swing “that would see Labour gain Arfon on May 7”.
However Pllaid held onto a seat in Caerphilly council which saw a by-election in the ward of Penyrheol the same night.
Even the most fanatical Plaid supporter would claim that this pointed to them gaining the Caerpjilly seat or that it has any relevance on May's election.
