Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood has said that her party offers the strong leadership Wales needs in the face of the economic crisis arising from the Tata steel sell-off.
Speaking ahead of the Party of Wales manifesto launch in Cardiff this morning, Leanne Wood said that her party would be setting out “the most ambitious programme for government since the advent of devolution” with ambitious but achievable plans to create a well, well-educated and wealthier Wales.
She added that Wales now needs a government with the ideas and drive required to transform the fortunes of Wales’s economy and public services.
Speaking ahead of the Plaid Cymru manifesto launch, Leanne Wood said:
“Plaid Cymru goes into this election with the most ambitious programme for government since the advent of devolution.
“Today, we will be outlining bold and innovative ideas to create a well, well-educated and wealthier Wales by transforming the fortunes of our economy and public services.
“Infrastructure investment, cutting waiting times, free social care for older people and support for teachers are just some of the ways in which Plaid Cymru intends to improve the lives of all who live in Wales.
“With our country facing economic crisis arising from Tata Steel’s decisions to sell its UK operations, Wales needs strong leadership and clear direction more than ever before.
“Responsibility lies at the heart of our programme for government. With a fully-costed and independently-verified plan for Wales, we are confident that this manifesto represents the first chapter in a period of better governance for our nation.
“Wales now needs a new government with the ambition and drive required to steer our country to success. That is what Plaid Cymru offers in May.”
