A General Election always sees new faces representing their constituents in Westminster.
Here are the new names who have been elected:
- Fay Jones - Conservative, Brecon and Radnorshire
- Rob Roberts - Conservative, Delyn
- Robin Millar - Conservative, Aberconwy
- Jamie Wallis - Conservative, Bridgend
- Alex Davies-Jones - Labour, Pontypridd
- Beth Winter - Labour, Cynon Valley
- Virginia Crosbie - Conservative, Ynys Mon
- Simon Baynes - Conservative, Clwyd South
- Sarah Atherton - Conservative, Wrexham
James Davies (Vale of Clwyd) and Craig Williams (Montgomeryshire) are also returning to Parliament having been MPs before.
Alex Davies-Jones has been elected MP for Pontypridd, meaning that the Labour Party holds the seat with a decreased majority.
The new MP beat Conservative Sam Trask by 5,887 votes. This was less than Owen Smith’s 11,448 vote majority in the 2017 general election.
Fflur Elin of Plaid Cymru came third and the Brexit Party's Steve Bayliss came fourth.
Voter turnout was down by 1.1 percentage points since the last general election.
More than 39,000 people, 64.7% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.
Three of the seven candidates, Mike Powell (independent), Sue Prior (independent) and Jonathan Bishop (independent) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.
