Plaid Glyndŵr was first registered with the Electoral Commission as a minor political party on 12 November 2012.[1] It is a Welsh nationalist and republican party that was based in Wrexham, Clwyd, Wales. Its leader was Dennis Morris.[2] It aimed to contest local and the Welsh Assembly Elections in 2016.[3]

The objectives of the party were:

  • Welsh independence outside of the European Union.
  • Oppose everything that suggests the destruction of Welsh identity.
  • The right for Wales to control its own natural resources.
  • Running in local, town and county elections.

In 2014 Morris launched a campaign to stop the Union Flag being flown more prominently than the Welsh flag on public buildings, particularly the Town Hall in Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.[4]

In 2015 Plaid Glyndŵr launched an online petition to stop people from outside Wales being given social housing before local people.[5]
