Constituency Profile

Ynys Mon ("Anglesey" in English) is an island constituency off the north-west coast of Wales.

It is the only Welsh constituency to have been held at various elections by all four main parties in Wales. It is home to Wales' only nuclear power station at Wylfa - a major employer. The existing power station is currently being decommissioned, but there are plans to replace it with an entirely new one. Holyhead international ferry port offers links to Ireland and tourism also provides many jobs. Nearly one in four of the population (24%) is over 65 - the Wales average is one in five (20%). The current AM is Plaid Cymru's Rhun ap Iorwerth who won the seat with nearly 60% of the vote in a by-election in 2013. In 2011, the former Plaid Cymru leader Ieuan Wyn Jones won with 41% of the vote. The Conservatives were second with 29%, Labour third with 26% and the Liberal Democrats fourth with 3%.
