 Plaid's selection process for the European elections is far more democratic than anything that the other parties do. Get yourself along to the hustings meetings and cast your vote. There are seven meetings around the country - see below.

 Some Plaid members mistakenly believe the party uses a system to put a woman candidate on top of the list of Euro candidates. This is completely false and has never been the case. The choice will be made according to the number of votes using a single transferable vote system.
 Blackwood/Coed Duon - Miners' Institute - 20/6/08 

 Aberystwyth - Marine Hotel - 27/6/08 

 Bangor - Powis Hall, Bangor University - 1/7/08

 Rhosllannerchrugog - Y Stiwt - 2/7/08

 Carmarthen/Caerfyrddin - St Peter's Hall - 15/7/08

 Swansea/Abertawe - County Hall - 15/7/08

 Cardiff/Caerdydd - Temple of Peace - 19/7/08

All meetings 7-9.30pm except for Cardiff 10am-2pm

The choice for Europe

The choice for Plaid's European representatives has begun.
 Challenging sitting MEP Jill Evans will be Natasha Ashgar, Ioan Bellin, Morgan Brobyn, Farida Aslam and Eurig Wyn.
 The newcomers represent the changing face of Plaid - and Wales - and we eagerly await the hustings taking place across Wales.
 The best of luck to all the candidates.
