Members of Cardiff Central Liberal Democrats have selected Eluned Parrott AM as their candidate for the 2016 Welsh Assembly elections.
Eluned was elected as the Welsh Liberal Democrat AM for South Wales Central in 2011, and since her election she has served as her party’s Shadow Minister for the Economy, Business, Transport and Europe. In her first year as an Assembly Member she won the ITV Wales Politician of the Year ‘One to Watch’ award.
She is recognised for her work on a number of issues as an Assembly Member, and was widely praised for speaking candidly about her own experience with mental health issues while fighting to improve experiences of those with mental ill health in Wales.
Eluned, a graduate of Cardiff University, has lived and worked in the city for over 20 years. She has worked in marketing for major Cardiff employers such as Techniquest and Cardiff University.
Labour won the Cardiff Central seat from the Liberal Democrats in the last Welsh Assembly elections with a wafer-thin 38 vote majority.
