Betws yn Rhos By-Election

There was a By-election on Thursday  for the Betws yn Rhos division of Conwy Council
Betws yn Rhos - results
Election Candidate Party Votes %
Ifor Glyn Lloyd Independent/ Annibynnol 347 46% Elected
Clwyd Roberts Plaid Cymru - The Party of Wales 197 26% Not elected
Caroline Mary Evans Independent/ Annibynnol 127 17% Not elected
Bryn Jones Welsh Conservative Party Candidate/Ymgeisydd Plaid Geidwadol Cymru 83 11% Not elected

There was only a slight change from from the 2012 result.
Election Candidate Party Votes %
Doctor Ahmed Jamil No party name given/Ni roddwyd enw plaid 340 43% Elected
Clwyd Roberts Plaid Cymru - The Party of Wales 219 28% Not elected
Bryn Jones Independent/ Annibynnol 167 21% Not elected
Eryl Ellis Williams Independent/ Annibynnol 40 5% Not elected
John Oddy Independent/ Annibynnol 18 2% Not elected

Again its hard ro read anything in this with the Independents holding of Plaid . The problem of course is we have no idea how different the views of the new Independent is from the previous incumant.

The result leaves the council make up relatively unchanged

  • Independent 18
  • Conservative 13
  • Plaid Cymru 12
  • Welsh Labour 9
  • Welsh Liberal Democrat 5
  • The Labour and Co-operative Party Candidate 1
  • No party name given 1

The Council is led by Plaids Dilwyn Roberts in a coalition with Labour .Libdems and  independents so maybe you would expect the opposition Conservatives to do better

You'd hope with a strong name like "Ifor Glyn Lloyd" he'd only have eyes for the fatherland.

The Plaid Councillor for the Glyn ward on Conwy is Abdul Khan so I don't think names have anything to say.about loyalty to Wales

A true Welshman or Woman reflects in their deeds not in their name.
