 Description
"North Wales is a socially and politically mixed constituency containing traditional Labour industrial areas, prosperous resort and retirement suburbs, and rural Welsh speaking communities. Of all the Welsh electoral regions it offers the most hope to the Conservatives, but their 24% of the vote in 1997 was not sufficient to win any parliamentary seats. Plaid Cymru do not poll strongly outside their heartlands at Westminster elections, but they ran Labour a fairly close second at the 1994 European contests. If electors treat the Assembly elections in a similar way, Plaid could win four out of the 13 seats. The Conservatives and Liberal Democrats will secure some representation thanks to the ‘top up’, but the Tories in particular need to win some first past the post seats - Clwyd West is easiest - to provide evidence that they can have a future in middle-class Wales."
