Constituency Profile

Llanelli sits on the Carmarthenshire coast in west Wales.

The town itself is famous for its rich rugby history and is home to the Scarlets rugby team. It's also home to Tata's Trostre tinplate plant which currently employs around 650 people. More than a quarter (26.9%) of Llanelli's residents are employed in the public sector but at 67% the employment rate is lower than the UK average. Also, Llanelli's constituents, with an average age of 49, are the oldest in Wales. Despite being viewed as a safe Labour seat at Westminster level where the party has represented Llanelli since 1922, the seat at Assembly level has changed hands between Plaid Cymru (1999, 2007) and Labour (2003, 2011) at every election.

Labour AM, Keith Davies, is standing down at the 2016 election leaving behind a majority of 80 votes. In the 2011 election he polled 39.7% of the vote, slightly ahead of Plaid Cymru on 39.4%, with the Conservatives on 11%, an Independent candidate on 7.7%, and the Liberal Democrats on 2.1%.
