Constituency Profile

Carmarthen East and Dinefwr is one of five constituencies in the old county of Dyfed.

The seat consists of four valleys: the Teifi and Tywi to the north, where agriculture remains a major industry; and the post-industrial Gwendraeth and Amman valleys to the south. The Prince of Wales's Welsh home, Llwynywermod, is near the village of Myddfai, Llandovery. According to the 2011 census it is the constituency with the highest percentage of Welsh speakers, 55%. Plaid Cymru have held the seat since 1999 but there will be a new Assembly member in 2016 as Rhodri Glyn Thomas is standing down after representing the constituency for 17 years. Two former MP's are standing in 2016, the former Conservative minister Neil Hamilton for UKIP and and Adam Price for Plaid Cymru.
