"The central seat in the capital city was taken out of long-term Conservative control 1992 by Labour’s Jon Owen Jones, who held it at the 1997 General Election with a majority of 7,923. He is currently a Welsh Office minister. In 1997, the Conservatives slumped into third place, on 8,470, behind the Liberal Democrats, on 10,541. Socialist Labour came fourth with 2,230 and Plaid Cymru fifth on 1,504. The seat comprises Cardiff’s business district and university quarter.

Cardiff unitary authority itself is firmly in Labour hands, with Labour holding 55 of the 67 seats, the Liberal Democrats holding 9, the Conservatives 2 and Plaid Cymru 1."
